" I have a lot of ideas but I need some support to implement it. So this fellowship will allow me to interact with a bunch of students who have the same vision as me and they will help me to initiate and implement such things in real life. This fellowship will provide me a platform to actually work for the betterment of the society and towards the UN sustainable development goal – 3, Good Health and Well-being. Also if granted this fellowship, I will be able to reach a larger number of people through my team. I am very passionate about the cause I want to work for, so this fellowship will help my dream come true. "
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.
