UNITED NATIONS ACADEMIC IMPACT AND MCN PROUDLY PRESENT CADY ELIZABETH SUDDETH, A MILLENNIUM FELLOW FOR THE CLASS OF 2020.
UNC Charlotte | North Carolina, United States | Advancing SDG 13 & UNAI 9
" I am excited to be a part of the Millennium Fellowship because it is a great opportunity for me to work on a project to help the world around us. The changing climate is an issue that affects everyone across borders, communities, race, and sexual orientation. I am excited to work on a project that seeks to better the earth. Without helping our environment, all of the other sustainability goals will ultimately not succeed. Climate action is the basis for the success of all other community betterment initiatives. I am eager to work for such a prestigious program and collaborate with such a brilliant, community minded, and ambitious group of people from across the world. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: iAct
iAct is an interactive social media initiative to reach our university community and the greater Charlotte area with the potential for further outreach. Our focus would be on providing re-education, facts, and information about climate action through interaction with the online community and engagement at planned events in the real world. We aim to engage with the community and create interesting ways for all age groups to learn about the environment and ways to take care of it. To normalize sustainable actions, we will host community events on the university campus such as community pickups involving other on-campus groups or clubs, as well as daily events such as ‘Trashtalk Tuesday’ or ‘Salvage Saturdays’ to provide our social media audience with ways to be environmentally conscious. We will use social media analytics to determine progress towards our goal of 500-999 followers. We will also measure engagement for events from our online platforms with the hope that at least ⅓ of our online community is mobilized to spread the program.
