Enactus World Cup 2021
October 2021. Virtual
The Enactus World Cup 2021 took place virtually from October 14-21, 2021, showcasing and celebrating the work of 72,000 Enactus nextgen leaders from around the globe creating a better, more sustainable world.
This year’s Enactus World Cup was hosted by Jeff Houghton and Adesina Sanchez. The four-day programming gathered esteemed business leaders, Enactus Alumni, and 1,000+ students from more than 30 countries to experience Passion on Purpose. Notable speakers included the UN Secretary General's Special Envoy to the 2021 Food Systems Summit, Dr. Agnes Kalibata; IMAGINE Co-Founder and former Unilever CEO, Paul Polman; and Artist Voice Coach, Roger Love.
Sessions addressed pressing issues and actions needed to further advance the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals – specifically the needs to rethink plastic and combat the ocean crisis, the climate crisis, as well as food insecurity.
The Enactus World Cup 2021 was supported by impact partners Ford Motor Company and Unilever; Enactus innovation partners AIG, BIC, DSM, and Harmony; and the Better World Award Sponsor, Ford Motor Company Fund.
