The Re:act Story
Re:act gives communication design students the opportunity to engage with industry to develop a behavioural change campaign that positively influences the communities they live in.
In 2016 Hard Edge launched the Re:act behavioural change initiative in collaboration with Swinburne University of Technology School of Design. Re:act was created to provide design students with the experience of responding to a real world brief and pitching to real clients, and to raise awareness of road safety issues among 18-25 year olds and change their behaviour, making our roads safer for all.
Re:act was launched with the support of our foundation partners - TAC, RACV, Transurban, ARRB Group and the National Road Safety Partnership Program - who provided invaluable expertise in road safety and transport.
Since launching, Re:act has become a mandatory part of the course curriculum for Swinburne communication design students and in 2019 two new partners have come on board in Victoria - Australia Post and Telstra.
2019 also sees the launch of Re:act in NSW through University of Technology Sydney with a new set of partners which includes IAG, Transport for NSW and 3M.
Re:act will continue to grow in the future, helping more students raise awareness of road safety issues and change behaviour of their peer group.
