Enactus (Entrepreneurial Action Us) is the largest global business network in the world with over 72,000 members from 1,730 universities in 36 countries. Enactus UPEI is one of 79 university teams across Canada that implements projects to improve the economic, social, and environmental health of the country.
Throughout the school year, Enactus UPEI implements entrepreneurial projects that all have the common goal of making the world a better place. The group develops projects to help people on our campus and in our community. Enactus is an incredible way to develop skills, meet new people, build your resume, and help out your community.
In the 2018-19 academic year Enactus UPEI developed a completely new project, Bury & Bloom. Bury & Bloom fosters sustainability by recycling unwanted paper waste to create plantable products. Our first line of plantable products includes greeting cards which contain seeds and are able to be planted. Our group also visited Prince Edward Island elementary schools to educate students about the environment. Enactus UPEI demonstrated that even a new project—on a small scale—can make a big difference.
