The first event in France focused on the emergence of CSR projects and social entrepreneurship dedicated to students, the 2017 ECOLSION Seminar, organised by ENACTUS France, took place from November 23 to 26 on the Reims campus.
This seminar allows each year more than 200 students from around France to develop a long-term vision for their social entrepreneurship projects.
Animated and supervised by 45 professionals and 20 members of the ENACTUS France team, thematic workshops, coaching sessions and conferences were held over these 4 days, which were intended to provide the keys on how to take social action through entrepreneurship.
Thursday evening was devoted to the conference “The audacity of changing the world” where several speakers, one of them being a U.N. representative, discussed their backgrounds and careers and offered their vision of audacity.
Delphine Manceau, Dean NEOMA Business School, opened Friday session. “It is a pleasure for NEOMA BS to host this 2017 seminar. We share with ENACTUS a long history and common values: entrepreneurship and openness. We are proud of the commitment of our students in this association.”
