Universidad de Monterrey | Monterrey, Mexico | Advancing SDG 4 & UNAI 3
" Global perspective and new ways of contributing to the community.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Educate4ChangeMX
"Educate4ChangeMX" is a social impact project that addresses the issues of the lack of direction and education opportunities for the interdisciplinary growth of youth through the development of social impact projects to change their communities. The project aims to engage with youth from Monterrey and its surroundings, to reflect on the needs of their community and the different ways they can be part of the change through the development of their own projects inspired by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Due to the pandemic, we are accomplishing our goal through online impact (Facebook) via weekly content such as infographics, publications, and information capsules (in a short-video format) to deliver valuable information covering the topics of:
- Personal finances
- Social entrepreneurship
- Sustainable Development Goals
