" After having lived in Mumbai,India all my life, the city has been a constant source of inspiration and occasional reality checks on what it is to be human. Being the financial capital of my country, I have seen development and privilege but at the same time, as in any society, poverty and sickness, with Asia's largest Slum residing in Mumbai. I want to be a voice that can bring about constant change with the education and opportunities that I am grateful to have received and help those , only to be a better version of themselves to help them and their families. And Being a Millennium Fellow, it gives me a platform and huge opportunity to connect with people and be an advocate to bring about tangible change for society. With education and empathy , we can change the world. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Students for Sustainable Living
Under the title ‘Students for Sustainable Living’, the Millennium Fellows of NMIMS, Mumbai aim to create awareness about sustainability and sustainable practices. The project focuses on 3 of the 17 SDGs, namely 11, 12 and 13, which are Sustainable Cities and Communities, Responsible Production and Consumption and Climate Action respectively. We want to engage our fellow students in this initiative by organizing beach clean-ups, conducting webinars and workshops with experts in the field, and other activities. Through our independent student newsletter and the university website, we aim to raise awareness and encourage students to carry this initiative into their own homes and immediate surroundings. These webinars and articles will guide them through the process of switching to sustainable products in daily life, and how this can be done in an easy and cost effective manner.
