Enactus is an international project that involves students, professors and professionals in the development of sustainable entrepreneurial ideas. The team Enactus of the University of Trento was established in 2017 and it is among the first ones created in Italy. The team currently consists of around 30 students coming from different departments, such as Economics and Management, Law, Sociology and Cognitive Sciences Departments, but it intends to grow more in the number and variety of participants. In 2017, short after Enactus was launched in Trento, the UniTrento team presented its project Kilimangiamo and won the first National Competition in Italy. This important success allowed the team to participate in the Global Competition in London.
Kilimangiamo is an entrepreneurial project where a group of migrants play a crucial role. After an initial period of training, the migrants have the possibility to prepare some typical dishes of their countries of origin, transmitting in this way their culture through gastronomy. Each dish are prepared with fresh and certified ingredients in order to ensure the high quality of offered products. The aim of the project is to promote integration through the creation of work opportunities and social redemption for the migrants, and to offer a new experience to local communities.
