" Working the banner of UN is one of the few and the finest opportunities an undergrad could ever come across. To pursue a dream of bringing impactful changes in the lives of people must be the ultimate goal of each life under the sun. The Fellowship provides a platform where young and similar minds are chasing the same dream with a range of different approaches. To collaborate with people and learning from their experience will not only help us enhancing our pursuit but also be a step forward towards the final goal of achieving sustainable development as listed by the UN itself. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Ivory Tower
Project Ivory Tower is a collaborative research society where members research on the Sustainable Development goals of the UN. Alongside our projects, we also aim to spread social awareness through our website and social media pages. We have undertook two research projects to analyze:
1) The concept of dignified and undignified occupations and their effect on mental health of the workers with special reference to the pandemic.
2) The influence of patriarchy on all the three genders i.e. men, women and the non-binary and how it affects the genders differently in the North/South regions of the country.
