Today the fellows had their 4th and final conference call giving them the opportunity to share their individual experiences and learnings from their project implementation process. The fellows will finalize their fellowship with the Ban Ki-moon Centre next week 31st May by presenting the impact report of their SDG Micro-Projects.
