“Students with the ambition to volunteer should have that opportunity. REACT grew out of this epiphany.“

Simon Wessberg, Co-founder of REACT

REACT is a part of Chalmers Student Union (Chalmers Studentkår), and is an organisation which aims to enable students to take part in volunteering projects adapted to the students’ fields of study. By linking students, NGOs and companies, REACT hope to raise awareness about local and global societal issues, utilize students’ competences and ideas and at the same time offer students practical experiences for the future.
