" To carry out any project that needs a team work requires some essential skills such as leadership skills, communication skills, group work skill, adaptivity etc. We are able to enhance these skills only when we work with different people from around the world. Millennium Fellowship will help me achieving these skills that I can utilize in future. Thus I'll be enough able to keep big social impact and keep myself affiliated with SDGs and UNAI principles. I am really looking forward to learning new ways and directions of creativity and social skills. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Eco-Network
Eco-Network is a youth led Global Organization that is working for ensuring Environmental sustainability everywhere in the world. It is such a platform where anyone can join & take some action for protecting our environment & mother nature. We work on SDG goals which are related to environment like Climate Action (SDG 13), Clean & Renewable energy (SDG 7), Life on Land (SDG 15), Clean water & Sanitation (SDG 6). We collaborate all these 4 goals with Gender equality (SDG 5). Because we believe, if we can’t ensure equity, we can’t expect sustainable development. Eco-Network engages Youth to promote SDGs in different high schools & rural areas as well. Our main focus are teenagers & women.
We have organized online and offline events. Awareness programs, and online webinars. We did a fun raising event to help the people in need who suffered losses due to the pandemic. The goal of the project is to ensure climate sustainability among all of the people of Bangladesh along with all of the people all over the world for a better mother nature: Earth.
