Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Waste Hacks
The project Waste Hacks aims at spreading awareness about waste management, sustainability and Climate Action. Our project focuses on SDG no. 11, 12 and 13 along with the UNAI principle no. 9. As a part of this project, we plan to use the social media platform as our primary source to spread awareness and educational content. We have conducted one online discussion forum about the waste management and it's impact on climate action. We had also run a individual volunteering program called "Waste Hackers" in which the volunteers were encouraged to complete a simple task related to waste management and make their smallest contribution towards the environment. The tasks included Poster making, reusing or repurposing waste, recycling etc.
