" Being a Millennium Fellow helps me to become a part of an extensive network, thereby allowing me to meet like-minded souls who strive to empower the lives of the people and help them realize their true potential. I firmly believe that this fellowship would further boost my motivation to make a social impact and serve as a guide towards the path I want to take. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Happy Sea
The Happy Sea project aims at protecting and bringing in sustainable management of coastal ecosystems by addressing the impacts of marine pollution. Our Primary objectives for phase 1 were:
➢ Use social media to promote awareness among the locals and youngsters to galvanize community action to reduce local over-reliance on avoidable single-use plastics and follow efficient waste management techniques.
➢ Create a website for registering volunteers and for tracking progress.
➢ Reach out to volunteers from similar initiatives to get technical know-how and learn from their experience.
➢ Segregate the plastic and scrap materials collected during the beach cleanup drive and send them to a recycling unit.
