See Opportunity

See Opportunity

Opportunities to enable progress surround us. Solar energy can be harnessed to produce clean drinking water, discarded shipping containers can be repurposed as housing solutions for the homeless and naturally abundant ryegrass can be used to support healthy fisheries. Every day, in communities around the world, Enactus students are transforming opportunities into real, sustainable progress through the power of entrepreneurial action. This campaign was developed to celebrate how these students are seizing opportunity and to illustrate what’s possible when entrepreneurial young minds are empowered to take action. It’s also an invitation for you to take action. We hope you’re inspired to share their stories, support their projects and most importantly, join our community. Together, we can make the world a better place by empowering even more young people to see opportunity, take action and enable progress.
