" It is very important for people to become aware of the SDGs and do their part for it. It will be a great learning experience in organising and planning the project executions with my fellows. Every hobby or passion we have can in someway help us make an impact such qualities of mine will be enhanced through the program in involving more people for the cause. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Nurturing Nature
The project “Nurturing Nature” talks about the different aspects which help us in optimizing resource usage for sustainable management, and maintain a proper economic balance for a better quality of life. This all can be done by initially working on our “lifestyle choices”. If we talk about composting, we can do it in our homes (kitchen waste). This compost can then be used during planting. We can build up compost pits on the campus as well with the waste generated from canteens and other wastes. We can have workshops that promote the generation of innovative ideas for waste management as well as some interesting “DIY hacks” which help in resource optimization. On the other hand, we would also conduct seminars for raising awareness about existing largescale methods of controlling waste. We can spread awareness through social media platforms by creating pages and websites, and also conduct engaging activities like tree planting competitions, etc. We could also conduct campus-wide clean-ups in universities. Another aspect of waste management is recycling, which is crucial in our fight against non-biodegradable waste. Recycling newspapers, selling off scrap to dealers. Lastly, partnering students with NGOs for raising funds and events.
