University of California Davis | California, United States | Advancing SDG 13 & UNAI 9
" The increasing urgency to take climate action now fuels my passion, and being part of the Millennium Fellowhip will open several doors of opportunity in collaborating and connecting with like-minded students with similar goals. The skills I hope to learn from the fellowship will pull our university in the direction of achieving SDGs and UNAI principles. I am looking forward to this invaluable learning experience. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Environmental Justice at UC Davis
Our project, Environmental Justice at UC Davis, will be a public conference with environmental justice professionals, decision-making UC Davis faculty members, ASUCD (student government), environmental club members, and other UC Davis students. It will be held on January 8, 2022. Our goal in facilitating this is to come up with environmental justice policy and action plans for the campus to adopt. Because the environmental justice lens is central to making strides towards a “sustainable” future that realizes the climate challenges of today, we must come up with goals and actions that reflect this need. It will be a student-run and led conference that will deliver specific goals and actions that UC Davis can take to create a more environmentally just space for its students, staff, and community.
