Ateneo to host youth forum on social change through business

The Ateneo Center for Social Entrepreneurship (ACSEnt) and its youth arm Catalyst are organizing the Social Change Through Business: A Youth Forum with the theme “Redefining Capitalism: A New Model for a New World.” The forum aims to gather the best student leaders from across the country. The event will be held at the Ateneo de Manila University from August 30 to September 1, 2012.

The event aspires to provide a venue for promising young leaders to share their leadership experiences with each other and to discuss key issues pertaining to Philippine society. Furthermore, the conference will introduce the concept of social entrepreneurship and invite these young leaders to become catalysts for change in their respective regions. Not only will the students learn from the experiences of the various social entrepreneurs and fellow participants, but they will also have the chance to gain first-hand experience of working for a social enterprise here in the Philippines.
