Millennium Fellowship Project: Climate Change X The Habits
Climate Change x The Habits is a project led by the members of The Habits, a student club at LCC International University. The project aimed to educate students about climate change and people's impact on it. A series of educational meetings (documentary screenings and an online course group enrollment) and recreational events and workshops have been run. They encouraged the students to reflect on the issue of sustainability and to take action in their lives.
