On Thursday, June 5, Holly Chang served as a judge for Day 1 of the Enactus China competition. Enactus is an international organization that seeks to unite students passionate about using social entrepreneurship as a tool to build and promote a more sustainable world. Enactus pairs students with academic leaders and business experts to implement projects designed to serve their community and improve quality of life. Each year, regional and national competitions take place, culminating in the annual Enactus World Cup.
Some projects presented during the competition included a water clean-up project, a program targeting issues faced by migrant workers, a project proposing to preserve local crafts and boost the local economy in Huaiyang, and many other social innovations.
Enactus is an international non-profit organization that brings together student, academic and business leaders who are committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to improve the quality of life and standard of living for people in need.
Guided by academic advisors and business experts, the student leaders of Enactus create and implement community empowerment projects around the globe. The experience not only transforms lives, it helps students develop the kind of talent and perspective that are essential to leadership in an ever-more complicated and challenging world.
entrepreneurial—having the perspective to see an opportunity and the talent to create value from that opportunity;
action—the willingness to do something and the commitment to see it through even when the outcome is not guaranteed;
us—a group of people who see themselves connected in some important way; individuals that are part of a greater whole.
