Across the globe there are over 80,000 students involved in Enactus. In the UK alone there are over 50 Enactus University societies and every year they come together in London to present their work over the past year with the hope of going on the represent the UK in the Enactus World Cup. In 2015 Enactus Belfast reached the final 5 teams of the competition thanks to the efforts of an incredible team and fantastic projects. Although they weren't lucky enough to win this time round, next year is another year and another opportunity.
"Enactus is a fantastic society to get involved in while at university. No matter what your degree course is, there's something for everyone. It's one thing to learn about something from a book but when you can get involved in something that creates real social change - that's where you really learn. We are always on the look out for new members to get involved and I encourage anyone to get in touch to find out more about how they can join the team - they won't regret it!" - Orlaith Downey, Enactus VP
