" It's an honour to be joining the Millennium Fellowship. Networking with other like-minded individuals seeking to make social change will be an empowering experience. As our generation steps to the forefront as leaders we hold the same responsibility we hold previous generations to account for. I am hopeful that as Millennium Fellows the skills we learn and our passion for social change will help us to shape a better future for all. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Educating youth on building healthy relationships
There is a strong emphasis on sexual health education for youth in order to prevent sexually transmitted diseases which is very important, however, there is much less emphasis on teaching young people the skills and information they need to build healthy relationships emotionally. This project, which will be coproduced with the think tank Healthy Teen Minds, seeks to address this by introducing young people to research on relationships from the psychology and neuroscience fields. The project will also encourage group discussions on philosophical views of relationships by academics like Simone de Beauvoir, young people’s own religious views, and the way relationships have been portrayed in popular media like the young people’s favourite TV shows, movies or songs.
