Millennium Fellowship Project: The Ocean Mindset

Hey, did you know that the majority of people are unaware of the beauty and
importance of our seas? That's why I want to bridge the gap by spreading awareness
and helping people appreciate the incredible variety of marine life. I aim to provide a
platform where individuals can engage with and become more mindful of their
surroundings, both on land and at sea.
My plan is to have both theoretical and practical aspects to the project. The theoretical
part will focus on educating people about marine life and the importance of preserving
it, while the practical part involves beach trips, coral research, aquatic life movement
tracking, and more.
I'm really excited about this project and intend to have others traverse this exploratory
journey in a variety of inventive ways. For example, I could show them my scuba
diving footage for a firsthand view of the water, and invite marine biologists and other
experts to talk about climate change's effects on marine life. My dad, who is a birdwatcher
and blogger, will take us on excursions to nearby forests too. We could also
create a blog with the help of our budding writers to document our adventures and
raise awareness.
But the success of this activity is contingent on the context in which it is carried out.
To that end, I plan to approach this endeavour in a manner that is both casual and respectful, prioritising ideals such as inclusivity, humility, and empathy. Considering
the target audience, which will be students and youngsters generally around the age
of 18–23, it is vital to guarantee that this project does not feel like a classroom but as a
"feeling." People must believe that the ocean is a whole new world just waiting to be
discovered and that this great blue world is worth going the extra mile and fighting for.
What do you think? Are you ready to become a part of something much bigger? Are
you ready to change the world?
