The main aim of the project “Finding grass-root solutions for refugee crisis in Europe” is to increase opportunities for quality partnerships among different stakeholders within the framework of the Erasmus +, on the topic of migration and refugees.  The programme will provide space for participants to build new partnerships and expand their network, as well exchange good practices and experiences in the preparation and implementation of projects (new innovative methods and approaches). In addition, they will explore the possibilities and priorities of the Erasmus plus Youth in Action programme and understand better the eligibility and quality criteria of the programme.  This partnership building activity will take place in Brussels during the first week of June 2016, and its main objectives are to provide cooperation opportunities and new partnerships among different actors working on the topic of migration and refugees and to understand the basics of quality partnerships as well as to be able to develop the quality partnership on international level. Additionally, it seeks to encourage the development of the basis of the future common Erasmus+ project ideas tackling issues connected to migration and initiate and reinforce future cooperation between youth workers and other relevant stakeholders.

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.
