Our proudest moment of the past year:
When the king of the Netherlands, his Royal Highness Willem-Alexander, visited Wageningen and talked with us about UniPlastic.

Biggest challenge from the past year:
Our biggest challenge was progressing our projects from ideation phase to implementation phase. We got through this by building up a network of people who we could work with together so that we could take the necessary steps.

Team described in one word:
Motivated

Get to Know Us:

Noor is a Business Studies student from Wageningen who anticipates graduating in 2021. She has been involved with Enactus for two years and is in charge of External Relations for UniPlastic. Noor began her membership with Enactus as she and Dagmar, another team member, were searching to do something besides their studies, preferably do something good for others. “A friend of hers told us about her experiences with Enactus and that is why we decided to start a new team in Wageningen.”

More about Noor:

  • What I’m reading: “Hersenschimmen” by J. Bernlef
  • Theme song: “A Million Dreams” by P!nk
  • Who inspires me: Morgan Freeman
  • Enactus in one word:  Valuable
  • Best Enactus moment: Going to the World Cup in London in 2017 without having a clue about the organization Enactus. Meeting Enactus members from all around the world for the first time and hearing about their achievements inspired me to try to do the same in Wageningen.
  • In five years, I will be… “…working on creating a circular economy. I would preferably try to optimize the supply chains of organizations in order to make them more sustainable.”
