Every action makes a difference

 Kevin Rotsaert is making the world better one project at a time

Environment student Kevin Rotsaert has experienced more cultures in less than 25 years than some people do during their lifetimes. A true world citizen, he has lived in six countries and has led three projects to help others around the world.

In high school, Kevin founded a student humanitarian group that helped migrant workers in Oman and built schools in Bangladesh. In university, he unites his passion for entrepreneurship with his drive to make a difference in the Environment & Business co-op program. He’s already cut his teeth on campus-wide impact by starting a composting program in the Environment 3 building.

This summer, he travelled to the eastern coast of South Africa to volunteer his time with 14 other like-minded students to rebuild and retrofit a rural school with a library, music room, classrooms, and a huge jungle gym.
