" Being a part of the Millennium Fellowship would help me connect with like-minded people and this would allow me to broaden my scope for contributing to the social awareness campaigns. Being a part of this community could help me learn more and enhance my creative skills to come up with solutions to social issues. It would be easier to streamline my activities with the SDGs as a Millennium Fellow. "
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.
