" Climate change is a real and dire issue facing our world right now. Large immediate actions must be taken to mitigate and adapt to the Earth's changing climate. If each individual can work to lower their own carbon emissions, it will push large corporations towards carbon neutrality and even negativity. I am hopeful that humanity will be able to band together in order to make real change against climate change. "

Millennium Fellowship Project: Transportation Transformation

We aim to ease access to sustainable transportation on and around our college campus. This would happen by petioning the city to create a bike lane on multiple main roads in and around campus as well as petitoning Northeastern to subsidize or provide free passes to BlueBikes and the local transit system. This would help students have a safer, more sustainable, and more affordable way to get to campus from off-campus housing, co-ops, or jobs. This would also create safer and more accesible bike lanes around Boston, which would promote wellbeing and sustainable transportation.
