Supported by the programme Erasmus+, Key Action 2 Strategic Partnership in the field of Youth, the project ‘Democratic governance in youth organization – key to participation’ sought to strengthen the capacity and sustainability of youth organizations by developing the competences of their democratic leadership and management structures in order for them to be able to grow sustainably. From September 2015 until November 2016 OTB worked closely with JUB-Netherlands (Lead Partner), Center for Intercultural Dialogue – Macedonia and TOG-Turkey with the aim to strengthen the internal communication among the volunteers, youth workers and employees within the organizations, which would affect the impact of their work.

In addition, the objectives of the project were to develop participants’ ability to relate the work of their organizations with youth policy and provide them with up-to-date research (study) on youth organizations management. Furthermore, the project sought to develop participants’ understanding and knowledge of various forms of youth participation through youth organizations and their applicability for the management of a youth organizations, as well as to provide them with ICT tools for online youth participation, better communication and coordination to stimulate their growth.

The project provided a Research on Motivation of Young people to participate in youth organisations, and a Toolkit on Concepts of online youth participation and E-democracy in national youth organizations.

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.
