Millennium Fellowship Project: Sustainable development Advocates
SDA is a platform designed to create awareness on the SDGs on campus, implement projects and reduce exponentially the alarming rates of students ignorance towards the SDGs. We aim to sign at least two-third of the entire university undergraduates to sign up and supports the SDGs. As a testament to our achievements, SDA ambassadors organized the first ever United Nations Hult Prize competition in UNILAG, completed a comprehensive training sections on the SDGs for undergraduates during the summer break, to mention a few. SDA is up and running and aim to expand her horizon by making at least two out every three students sign up and support the SDGs through numerous projects. A huge metamorphosis began in my career odyssey in the year 2019, when I came on board as a member of the Sustainable Development Goals Awareness Campaign Tour (SDGsACT); an organization aimed at getting at least a million youths to sign up for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). I decided to join this group of young great change makes to localize the SDGs on campuses; an action we considered a sole pedestal in SDGs realization. The idea is to spread the SDG right form start on school campus.
