Millennium Fellowship Project: Zero Plastic Waste on Campus

Zero Plastic waste on campus is a group project of our cohort that we choose to give birth to in other to improve the study condition of all the students on our university and mainly to clean our campus and help keep it clean by calling all the students of our university to action to cancel plastic waste pollution on our campus. In fact, many sites at our university had become a geographic point to throw rubbish, mainly those in plastic. And this has become a very big problem because of the bad management of these rubbish on our campus and the short distance that separates them from the commercial centers where most of the food eaten is sold in our university.
The main activities of this project are to organize one or more than one sensitization session(s) to present to our fellows.

First step:
Awareness-raising via social networks aimed at communicative lobbying of our networks by writing content and inviting friends to do the same.

Second step:
As we were looking for some sponsors, we came across the Giving Back circle of the Mastercard foundation scholars, and we decide to join them in their idea to organize a cleaning day. We will collaborate with them to achieve our goal of a zero plastic waste on campus.

The SDGs that we are going to meet are:
SDG3: Good health and well-being
SDG11: Sustainable cities and communities
SDG15: Life on Land
