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 am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because it gives me access to a network of students around the world equally as passionate about furthering the sustainability goals globally.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
Plan-It Earth is the inaugural edition of a sustainability ideathon held at Georgetown University that brings together students, experts, and practitioners to generate solutions to critical environmental challenges. The 2018-2019 theme is "Conservation X Development" to promote the link between environmental conservation and economic development. This semester, we are hoping to lay the major groundwork for the ideathon, including formalizing goals and partnerships to allow Plan-It Earth to become an annual event, as well as bringing together at least 250 students, 25 experts, and 50 volunteers. As the Co-Director of Technology and Communications, Maya hopes to have launched the Facebook and mobile application for the conference along with developing the language for both platforms. As the conference nears, she will post promotional material and relevant articles twice a week regarding environmental sustainability.
