" I am really happy to be part of this amazing program because is the best way for me to increase my knowledge in a diverse area that I don't usually have in Engineering. I know that being part of Millennium Fellowship will improve the way we learn by having the opportunity to exchange opinions with open minded people. I am willing to let people see that everyone can be a changemaker no matter their field, economic situation or origin, you just need to have a bit of kindness in your heart to start. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: The Social Bond Innovation Project
The SBI Project propose a virtual circle consisting of several actions in different axis that tackle necesities of the student population. We want social innovation to be common, to be something to be proud of and that everyone knows the changemakers. We believe everyone is a changemaker, we are just there to give a little push-up. As a goal we have to increase the amount of people that assist to our workshops from 30 to 100 people and to increase the list of people that are part of Aldea del Cambio which is a directory of social entrepreneurs to help eachothers.
