Thirteen Columbia undergraduates ranging from sophomores to seniors form part of the newly named 2021 class of Millennium Fellows, a program run by the United Nations Academic Impact and Millennium Campus Network. The program’s purpose is to “convene, challenge, and celebrate” student leaders working toward UN sustainable development goals through social impact. The Columbia cohort joins more than 2,000 Millennium Fellows this year, who represent more than 120 college campuses worldwide.
Given that Climate Week NYC starts on September 20, now is the time to celebrate Columbia’s Millennium Fellows, who are focusing on sustainable development and climate issues.
