From the 30th of November to 9th of December, Out of the Box International is organizing a week dedicated to innovations and networking in the field of Internet, educational, social entrepreneurship and youth policies.

Out of the Box Week is taking place in Brussels, in three different locations, bringing together experts, entrepreneurs and educators, different organizations, from more than 20 European Countries. It is our annual event with the idea to bring together experts who share innovative ideas and provide them with the time and space to exchange those and co-create.

The weekly programme starts with a final meeting of the Strategic Partnership Project, and working groups on Education, Internet and Social Entrepreneurship and Training of Out of the Box Expert Pool. It will also include a study visit of 10 youth organizations from Europe to the European Institutions discovering the practices of cross-sectoral policy development, an Advocacy visit for Civil Rights Organizations from Moldova and kick off of the long term project dedicated to higher education curricula.

Why Out of the Box International

The seemingly ever-lasting depression of European economies has shaken the very foundations of many European societies. The shear rate of unemployment in Europe and the omnipresent environmental crisis coupled with the often frustratingly slow process of decision making in the EU, are calling for civil society actors to step in and fill the void.

In the aftermath of the 2008. economic crisis, the apprehension of falling under the spell of apathy of economic depression across the continent has not been easy to shake off. However, pinpointing the culprits for the current state of affairs on any particular EU decision maker is not the answer. Nonetheless, the fact remains that the current approach to the economic and environmental crisis hasn’t yet shown the affected citizens the light at the end of the tunnel.

As representatives of the civil society we feel the need to make our voice heard in the midst of the current debate on economic crisis. Being a social enterprise we offer new and feasible ideas in education and community work, creative cross-sectorial cooperation among different actors and strong networking coalitions to turn these dire economic challenges into possibilities through social entrepreneurship initiatives which aim at benefiting wide range of citizens, particularly vulnerable groups and those affected by the economic crisis.

Social entrepreneurship is a simple concept that has been put into practice by civil society actors for the benefit of a specific social group or people, and this is precisely what we want: to create projects and initiatives with fresh ideas in different policies, educational programs or tools, support businesses, empower cultural initiatives and offer different solutions to individuals, corporate bodies, everybody who believe that we can have more Creative, Innovative and Cohesive Europe.
