The skills and knowledge that I hope to gain from the Millennium Fellowship would help me
To reduce plastic pollution, advocate for a circular economy and sustainable environment
through recycling and waste upcycling. It will also help me educate a larger number of students about the SDG's

Make–Take Waste. This has been the economic and societal modus operandi for many years
now. We take primary resources, make them into products for consumption, and when the
product no longer has a use-we simply throw it away. For too many years we have thought of
our planet's resources as being unlimited, living too much in the present, and not thinking about

as' linear economy'. Moses is an advocate and would continue to make an impact and lastly help to achieve the Sustainable Development goals.
