RANEPA team wins third place in Enactus open league
Russia’s national Enactus team including students and graduates of RANEPA has won third place in the quarter-finals during the 2019 Enactus World Cup held in California, US.
Teams from 30 countries presented social, innovative and entrepreneurial projects they have implemented at the Enactus World Cup held in the capital of the Silicon Valley, San Jose. The project team of RANEPA Institute of Public Administration and Civil Service, the champion of 2019 Enactus Russia, represented our country.
The group included IPACS student Dmitry Logunov and graduates Yekaterina Turanova and Mikhail Nyuskhayev led by their tutors Yulia Sargsyan and Igor Moskalyov.
Team Russia’s project, WildCamp – Russian National Parks Service, the best national student initiative, focuses on assistance to protected areas: promoting the socio-economic development of natural areas, promoting national parks in Russia, providing services for the development of ecological tourism and eco-volunteer activities. Enactus participants from dozens of countries learned about Russian national parks and their development plans.
Representatives of the Academy successfully performed at the contest, with the jury giving them third place in the open league. The team was also offered international assistance in the implementation of their project. Experts recommended focusing more on working with foreign citizens and attracting them to Russian national parks.
