Enactus winners 2023, student holding trophy

Student-led team, Enactus Durham, have won the title of UK & Ireland Champions for Social Entrepreneurship in this national Enactus competition, for the second year in a row.

The team once again showcased their dedication to social entrepreneurship and implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, by presenting their project, Taka Taka Zero.

Taka Taka Zero is a community-led impact enterprise empowering young people in Mathare, Kenya to use innovative technology to convert waste into energy.

The team faced-off in a tough final against Aston University, UEA, King’s College London and Southampton University but impressed the judges with their impact reports and testimonials from project beneficiaries in Nairobi.

Having been crowned champions, the team will now go on to represent the University and the whole of Enactus UK & Ireland, at the World Cup to be held in Astana, Kazakhstan in October.
