Students Brew up Positive Change
Students in Concordia Shanghai’s Social Entrepreneurship class were recently awarded the ACAMIS Koerschen Award for Innovation in Schools.
Students applied for the award in hopes of sharing with the international community the impact their social enterprise, Third Culture Coffee Roasters, has had on the lives of farmers in rural Yunnan and as a way to earn funds to continue the authentic work they have started.
The Social Entrepreneurship class is an applied learning course that motivates students to become social entrepreneurs and agents of change through education and first hand business experience. Students source coffee beans directly from farmers in Yunnan, China, roast them on campus, and sell the roasted coffee to the community to guarantee that the process is socially and environmentally sustainable while at the same time advocating for conscientious consumer habits and connecting consumers to their supply chain.
