Enactus Durham

Enactus Durham is a student-led organisation that works to develop social enterprise projects – locally and internationally.

In joining Enactus, students are able to develop skills in innovation, creativity, business acumen and leadership.

Enactus Durham currently have 3 active projects:

    • Taka Taka Zero – based in Nairobi and using a community cooker to combat waste in an informal settlement
    • The Ugly Fruit Group – local to Durham, turning surplus fruit & vegetables into jams and other condiments to sell and support the local food bank
    • Glowcycle – supporting former women prisoners back into work or education

They are always looking for new members to join – either to participate in an existing project or to work with the Venture Lab team to develop ideas for new social enterprises.

Enactus Durham are the reigning UK Champions having won the national competition in April 2023. They represented both the University and Enactus UK at the World Cup in Utrecht, Netherlands in October 2023.
