ABOUT THE MILLENNIUM FELLOWSHIP - CLASS OF 2018
United Nations Academic Impact and MCN are proud to partner on the Millennium Fellowship. In the three months the application was open in 2018, students applied to join the Class of 2018 on 285 campuses across 57 nations. 30 campuses worldwide (just 11%) were selected to host the 530 Millennium Fellows in the global pilot this year.
The Class of 2018 is bold, innovative, and inclusive. Millennium Fellows' Projects are projected to positively impact the lives of over 310,000 people worldwide this year.
“I'm honored to be a part of the Fellowship. And I hope that all of us working together on our various projects can make the world a better place for all, and leave it better than we found it.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The Recycling Initiatives at Becker College is a project that is currently working on increasing the sustainability of Becker College by increasing the access and use of recycling bins around campus, as well as increasing the use of biodegradable materials in our dining services. They also hope to increase awareness of recycling within the student body through posters, signs, and events. With this project they are hoping to work towards the UNAI's 9th Principle on Sustainability and the 11th SDG on sustainable cities and communities as well as a bit of the 13th Regarding Climate Action.
