" Creative problem solving, critical, flexible and accurate thinking, team work with the optimism to change the world and make the earth a safe and just space/place are the drivers for why I do the work I do. Being a part of the Millennium Fellowship will enhance these skills collaboratively. I am sure to make meaningful impact, remarkable and sustainable changes with the skills and knowledge I gain from the Millennium Fellowship in line with the SDGs across every area and sector I find myself in even after graduating from the University. I am exhilarated and I anticipate being associated with bright minds with so much competence and innovative problem solving skills. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Safety and Waste Management
The Safety and Waste Management Project was centered on educating students of the University of Port Harcourt on safety and proper waste disposal and management via the use of classroom talks/tours, posters, social media etc. We also carried out a sanitation exercise at the University's park and classroom areas. Prior to that development, the intended project target point was the market around the University area but we faced some challenges with getting the approval to do so. But with the help of the Student Union Government, we were able to carry out the exercise within the school premises.
