Out of the Box International  works further to enhance current cooperation in South East Europe region and actively supports the integration of all European countries in common European project.

The beginning of the month was very busy for Out of the Box International within the Climate Box project. The main role of OTB in the project is to lead the project dissemination by overseeing the process of disseminating the project outputs and developing the dissemination plan. Furthermore, OTB is responsible for the project graphic design and logo, assisting in website templates’ development as well as supervising all partners in a joint effort for maximum result visibility. OTB has recently presented the new logo for the project.

Climate Box assumes that socio-economically disadvantaged groups and low-educated adults are less likely to a) obtain tailored information about climate issues and b) actively seek information about climate-related topics, as they are facing challenges related to their socio-economic status and may not perceive climate issues as their priority.

Climate Box aims to strengthen climate awareness of disadvantaged groups by developing climate-related training units, which adult educators can easily integrate into any kind of educational programme. Climate Box will create outputs tailored to specific needs of the disadvantaged with a particular focus on easy-to-understand information applicable to everyday life, such as energy and food consumption, water usage, waste reduction, clothing and mobility choices. For this purpose, the project will create a toolbox containing small, ready-to-use learning units, which educators and trainers can integrate into their courses to increase climate awareness and motivate participants to live a eco-friendlier lifestyle.

The official launch of the project website has been scheduled for the next few days, overseen by the project coordinator BUPNET in cooperation with Out of the Box International.

The Climate Box project will be implemented by 6 partners from Germany (BUPNET), Belgium (OTB), Austria (die Berater), Italy (CESIE), Bulgaria (CATRO) and Spain (Caminos).

The project is co-financed by the Erasmus+ KA2 Programme of the European Commission.

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.
