Why React!?

The development of a circular economy and social entrepreneurship is seen as key to improving the environment and creating positive societal change.  But whilst awareness and interest in social entrepreneurship and the circular economy is increasing,  it remains difficult for young people to access the right  information and support to inflict great change. Young entrepreneurship is an important driver for innovation and a path forward towards a sustainable economy.

How does React! work? 

React! aims to provide useful tool-kits to young people through Youth Workers. We will offer free international training programs on the topics of Circular economy, Social Entrepreneurship and Personal Development

By doing so Youth workers and organisations working with young people will have effective and attractive tools to provide non-formal education to young people, for aspiring entrepreneurs to really understand the principles of a sustainable economy ; and how to include it from the onset in their entrepreneurial projects.  

What will you learn?
