Sciences Po | Le Havre, France | Advancing SDG 13 & UNAI 9
" When thinking about social change and development, we can rapidly feel overwhelmed. However, even the smallest change has to start from somewhere. I’m extremely grateful and excited to be part of the Millennium Fellowship as it will allow me to bring my social impact to a new level, and to defend what I believe to be fair. I can’t wait to learn and connect with new people as eager as me to work for the same goals. "
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.
About the Millennium Fellow
Lilou Margueron is a young, curious and passionate woman, currently studying in Sciences Po Le Havre. She was born in China and grew up in France, in a small village of Savoie surrounded by mountains and glaciers. She felt quite young concerned about diverse issues and questions such as human rights and sustainability, and thus started to advocate for social change at her level especially through artistic, literary and musical projects. Conscious of the extreme urgency to tackle the climate crisis, she got involved in Sciences Po Environnement, dedicated to the promotion of a transition towards a greener way of life. As a utopian and optimistic person committed to social action, she aspires to contribute the best she can to the development of the UN’s Sustainable Goals, to build a better and fairer world.
