" Through Millennium Fellowship, I want to create a society that is aware of the impacts of the construction business and strive to make a change in today’s world. With discussions among young and old minds from different fields like engineering, architecture, designers, material specialists, scientists, we can create ingenious solutions and strategies. Through this platform, I can reach out to the masses and educate and learn through this give and take. As an Interior Design I aspire to use this knowledge and develop a building construction company, that shall excel in sustainable practices and continuously strive to bring about a change and inspire others to adopt this practice. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Sustainabilitylytical
Sustainabilitylytical- A page that brings together people from all walks of life dedicated to the building industry, that are passionate about innovating and learning about sustainability in construction. As we all know, building construction projects, be it interior works of an apartment or a skyscrapers, all are responsible for heaps of wastage in materials, water wastage, soil contamination, climate change and many more. By in-depth research, innovation, development and study in climatology, materials, technology and green society and combining them all together, we can create ground breaking solutions that can be utilised all around the world. In this project, I have developed a platform, where people would share their ideas, perspective and solutions to the various ill practices in the construction industry and have an open and healthy conversation about the same. Also in talks to hold a seminar, to share popular expert point of view on this subject and educate everyone on the on-going trends. This will develop the curiosity among young individuals and hopefully bring out a change in their remuneration. Lastly, in the near future a competition would be held for the most innovative idea for a sustainable project/ solution, that can bring out a change to the construction world, which shall have a massive impact.
