" Firmly believing that creativity nourishes adaptability, I aspire to contribute to enlightening new sustainable ways of consumption and living in harmony with our surrounding environments through education and social innovations. Being a part of the Millennium Fellowship is a valuable and humanly enriching experience I look forward to in order to expand our possibilities and broaden our perspectives in achieving meaningful social impacts, together. Stricken by new critical insights and experiences shared by fellow international students about Le Havre, I am determined to enhance the city’s living conditions with fervour, eventually hoping our initiatives will echo across borders.

Millennium Fellowship Project: LH²O
LH²O is a student initiative originating from four SciencesPo Paris, campus of Le Havre students, resolutely willing to act for social and environmental change in the maritime city of Le Havre by advancing UN SDGs 12 and 13. Throughout 2021, the initiative has strived to implement broadly-reaching cultural, artistic and pedagogical initiatives, among which our main ambition is a participative photo exhibition showcasing Le Havre's unique and inspirational nature with contributions from both students and citizens. Testimonies, insights and reflections upon the two themes given “Sea You” and “Entre Ciel & Mer” will be displayed with the photos concurrently with a short documentary comprising citizens and local actors of change’s interviews on their relation to water and the sea.
