The University of Texas at San Antonio | Texas, United States | Advancing SDG 10 & UNAI 9
" I am delighted to be part of the Millennium Fellowship class of 2020, because I have the opportunity to connect with a diverse group of global citizens and empower others to make informed decisions. My goal is to spread awareness of the environmental impacts of consumption and production and to inform others of how individual decisions can shape our environmental outcomes. I want to emphasize racial and socioeconomic disparities deepened by environmental distress. I hope that my work will help to change consumption and production patterns to be more sustainable. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Environmental Empowerment through Education
The Environmental Empowerment through Education project seeks to provide information to ordinary consumers (students) about how their habits influence the environment. It informs students about environmental stress resulting from production and transportation of goods and offers students information about sustainable living practices. Our goal is to engage with at least 100 students across diverse communities via social media, email and other remote platforms.
