It is a bittersweet feeling when a project comes to an end. We had a good time developing and implementing this project with our partners and we want to say: “Thank you for your effort, time and good energy”.

Now, we would like to share with you the results of the project Community Challengers – Towards sustainable & climate-smart communities through Arts & Social Entrepreneurship.

Firstly, we have The Sustainability and Climate Action Handbook.

The Handbook addresses young people and features sketches, infographics, and links to additional resources on climate action. It supports everyone to become aware of their potential to act for change as an individual, as a consumer, and as a part of a group or community.


Secondly, we have The Community Mapping Toolkit

This guide is for trainers and young people showcasing how to prepare, conduct and follow up Community Mapping workshops. The Toolkit is split into three parts. Part 1 is for offline work and contains the experiential and participatory methods of community analysis. Part 2 is online and contains a step-by-step guide on how to digitalise the community maps using digital mapping tools, in particular the free software MIRO. In Part 3, partners and trainers from across Europe will share experiences from the workshops.


In addition, The Community Challengers Guide was developed.

In this guide, you can see how to create artistic and entrepreneurial challenges with young people, help them reflect on their perception of climate change issues and get active in awareness-raising, information-spreading and solution-creation in their local community and beyond.

Part 1 focuses on art challenges in the fields of Film, Visual Arts, Performance and Music/Songs while Part 2 describes the 5-day entrepreneurship challenge, bringing together the format of a Hackathon with the topics of climate change, eco-friendliness, sustainability and activism.


Last but not least, we have The Advocacy Tutorial Series.

Check out this fun mini-advocacy tutorial series and see how to advocate. Through this ten – 2-minute videos you will emerge in the advocacy world and hear some inspiring young people.

All learning material is available in English, Italian, Serbian, Croatian, Portuguese and Latvian and you can download it on the Community Challengers Website.

Once again big thank you to the partner and we are looking forward to future collaborations with you.

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.
