“EUROTOPIA”  

The aim of this project is to create counter narratives by a international video campaign and a ”call to action” campaign- to counteract right wing and Islamic extremism propaganda on social media. The project will be a three country cooperation between partners from Sweden, Italy and Belgium. Belgium and Sweden have faced terrorist attacks and we wish to counter further attacks and act proactively concerning the case of Italy. The aim is to challenge the definition of who the hero and villain is in the narrative that is formatted by the extremist propaganda and promote visions of co-existence and tolerance. The fundamental thing we want to do is to change the story by changing the image, to be able to halt recruitment and foster behavior change. The aim is to create a 21 video package consisting of 3 minutes per video that will portray victims, former extremists and key against working against extremism. we wish to personalise the stories behind extremist violence from a holistic experience and also bring forth young voices and how they see us co-existing in the EU in the future.

Partners: Muzicadelic Entertainment (Sweden), CESIE (Italy) and Out of the Box International

The project is co-funded by Horizon 2020 of the European Union.

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.
