" Being a Millennium Fellow grants me a platform to voice my ideas and creativity while collaborating with like-minded individuals who have the same passion for progressive and sustainable causes. My takeaways from Millennium Fellowship will make my contributions towards society and the environment more tangible and feasible, aligning them more with the principles of the SDGs. What most exhilarates me are the connections and skills I will attain from this programme, which will allow me to channel them towards furthering my advocacies. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project ReGain
Project ReGain is inspired by Germany’s Pfand System and the current situation of Hong Kong’s Reverse vending machines for plastic bottles. Our project focuses on the advancement of sustainable cities and communities (SDG11) and advocating for responsible consumption and production (SDG12). The project is pioneered by four fellows from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University coming together to implement reverse vending machines in the school area, to support the student body in practicing and building a habit of recycling.
Our vision is grand and we plan to scale this project up with time; moving it to other institutions or even in areas across the city. Alongside this, we also want to spread knowledge and ideas about the various ways on how the consumption can be carried out which leads to a more sustainable ecosystem.
