" I believe that is the duty of every citizen of this planet to contribute something meaningful to the SDGs. The United Nations Millennium Fellowship Programme will provide me with the necessary skills to help me in my quest to do the same by contributing to my holistic and intellectual development. "

Millennium Fellowship Project: Vastra

Vastra, originally called Green Threads, is aimed at finding ways to repurpose/ reuse fashion waste and encourage responsible consumption of resources for clothing. It aligns with SDGs 12: Responsible Consumption and Production, 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities and 10: Reduced Inequality. Through Vastra, we want to teach people to upscale existing clothing and encourage them to donate clothes to the underprivileged or to small support groups that can turn them into handicrafts. Additionally, we wish to enlighten people about the importance of using sustainable fashion and make them aware of the negative impacts of fashion waste on the planet.

About the Millennium Fellow

Sreelakshmi Gangadharan is a curious girl who always wants to learn something new. It is this same thirst for knowledge about the sky above that persuaded her to pursue her bachelor's in Aerospace Engineering and that pushes her to explore uncharted territory.
She is also an avid orator, always looking for an opportunity to debate, on or outside a stage. She also enjoys creative pursuits like sketching and painting to name a few.
