" I am very excited about the opportunity of being part of the Millennium Fellowship and everything that I will be able to learn from this experience. I truly believe that the education is the base for our society and if anyone of us wants to make a difference in someone else's life we all need to be able to understand what is the best option for us and others. Also I think that we need to look at situations with a bright and open mind because i believe in the power of optimism. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Swapshion
Swapshion is a project that is focused on eradicate one problem that is involved in the global pollution: the brief cycle of life of clothes. The society is used to continuously throw away their clothes, instead, we are offering everybody an alternative for a better use of the clothes by hosting a collective where people will be able to donate or swap any item they want by giving one and getting one different in return. (specifically: shoes, t-shirts, pants, shorts, jeans, etc)
Due to the pandemic we won't be able to host the collectives so, our goals within August-December are to contact associations where we will donate the clothes collected after the pandemic, work on our logistics strategy, create our identity, spread our project so people get to know us and plan our new goals for the upcoming year.
