About the Millennium Fellow
Danielle Wolf joins us from Western Sydney University in Sydney, Australia. She is studying a degree in Humanitarian & Development Studies, and works with their Sustainable Futures office and is also part of the SDSN student group. As part of the education system, Danielle is passionate about Goal 4 especially, as not only is it a valuable Goal in itself, but by it people, communities and governments can learn what it means to live sustainably, together. Danielle believes it is only through diversity - of cultures, worldviews and initiatives - we will develop strategies to mitigate climate change and achieve global equality. To that end, her aspirations include partnering with Indigenous cultures in Latin America, to promote citizen-driven, sustainable community development through education and capacity-building, supporting their right to self-determination and independence.
