Event Details

Academics For Development is a global student organization founded on social entrepreneurship. Every year we organize hands-on projects across the world and on-campus events. Through these projects and events, we strive to give students the opportunity to enrich themselves and have durable social impact.

But what the heck is social entrepreneurship?! How can 1 person have such an impact? And what does that even mean, durable social impact?
