The Question! 

What can we do to fulfill our responsibility as citizens? Shouldn’t this question lead our daily behavior? Every time you stumble across this project, every morning you wake up, every time you have a second – take that second and think about it: What can I do? What can we do to support people in need, to support our environment?

Below we display a range of projects doing exactly this: Supporting people in need. Due to the current circumstances, these projects particularly focus on initiatives related to the terrifying war in Ukraine. We plan to complement these projects by other reliable initiatives supporting social and ecological concerns in the future.

ABOUT US

Imagine a world where there is no war, no hunger, no poverty, no abuse of power... unfortunately, that's not reality. So how can we change that? What can we do to fulfill our responsibility as citizens and support people who are caught in these circumstances? As a group of students inspired by the class “Marketing Communications”, we want to share a message of peace and solidarity at our University focusing on recent geopolitical events, in particular the war in Ukraine. Furthermore, we want to create awareness around honorable projects, organizations, and events affiliated with the University, the city of St. Gallen, and Switzerland. Our purpose is to present you with opportunities to help and contribute to local supporting projects. That's why we created the platform whatcanwedo.space to encourage the movement of support.

Thank you to all of our donors and supporters who made this project possible. In particular, thank you to Frank and Patrik Riklin, Caspar Eberhard, Kristian Küng, Filtex AG, among others.

If you would like your own project to be addressed on this platform, feel free to reach out to us via
