Would you like to help change the world for the better through a career-enhancing group project in 2019/20?
Enactus DMU, a (predominantly) student-led organisation invites students to their Welcome & Info Event On Wednesday 16 October 2019 at 2pm. Location: Innovation Centre Co-working Cafe (note: changed from Hugh Aston HU.2.06).
Raison-d’être: Giving students opportunities for interdisciplinary extracurricular learning around sustainability issues and SDGs.
Enactus offers “the world’s largest experiential learning platform, dedicated to creating a better world while developing the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders and social innovators.” It aims to develop solutions which are sustainable and work long-term.
For those who are not familiar with Enactus, the network is organised in a similar way to AISEC and Model UN, i.e. each uni campus forms their own group, and this is then part of a wider, national network, which is part of the ‘global family’. In addition to student-led activities, Enactus offers the opportunity to work with global business leaders, get employability training run by ‘big names’ in industry, and fundamentally opens students a new world of opportunities, beyond the classroom and their degree.
“The Enactus network of global business, academic and student leaders are unified by our vision—to create a better, more sustainable world“
Anyone is welcome, UG, PG, with or without prior experience. Interest in ‘big issues’, empathy and an open mind are important; we aim to foster entrepreneurialism and resilience – and all the other good skills you need, from communication, project management, problem solving. All while having a good time and growing.
