In this episode of The Intelligent Community, Lou Zacharilla interviews Jon Milos, Professor of Business at Lambton College, about the ENACTUS Lambton Program.
Enactus seeks to create solutions to economic, social and environmental issues through outreach projects and business ventures in order to bring about sustainable change in its community.
It is an international non-profit organization that brings together student leaders to create a better, more sustainable world through the positive power of business. The organization operates in 36 countries with the involvement of 1700 college and university campuses. Students form teams on their campuses and apply business concepts to develop outreach projects that improve the quality of life and standard of living for people in need.
Annual national competitions provide a forum for these teams to present the results of their projects, and to be evaluated by business leaders. By contributing their talents to projects that better the lives of people worldwide, Enactus participants demonstrate that individuals with a knowledge and passion for business can be a powerful force for change.
