" I believe the only way we are going to reach drawdown and reverse the effects of climate change as well as reach all of the UNSDGs is to work together and find interdisciplinary solutions to the world's problems. I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because I will have the opportunity to make those interdisciplinary connections with like-minded students as we all try and make the world a better place. "

Millennium Fellowship Project: Project New Atlanta

About the Millennium Fellow

William Abdallah is a student born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia that attends the Georgia Institute of Technology. He comes from a diverse household where his dad is from Lebanon and his mom is from the United States. Will has always been fascinated by the intersection of entrepreneurship and sustainability and how we can create truly impactful, sustainable innovation and implement it in a way that appeals to the entire triple bottom line. Throughout high school and college, he has been involved in a variety of sustainability initiatives but has narrowed down his passion to cities. What he loves about cities is how you can make a huge impact in a small geographic location, but also how cities foster amazing relationships between people and the built environment. Through this love he has tightened his focus to helping empower the underserved West Atlanta community and help them champion sustainable development projects centered around infrastructure.
