There is also the benefit of access to new markets, international cooperation and potential opportunities for cooperation with foreign partners.

My thoughts and expectations 

Researching cultures and applying my knowledge in life is a wonderful feeling as I am changing myself and my surroundings into something better. There is no better place for me than Brussels, the center of multiculturalism, a place where ideas that change the world are born, to move my boundaries once more. Some of the objectives of this program that I find particularly important are learning about building data, client communication and building network capacity, enlarging network for future collaboration (partners, experts, and clients), better understanding the context and mechanism of EU funding, writing project documentation and making project applications, developing project management skills. 

About me

Having completed high school and professional education as a Hotel-Tourist Technician, and working in the Tourism sector for over 12 years I have gained various skills in communicating with people of different cultures as well as the knowledge of English, German, Spanish and Italian language. I gained my title of Bachelor of Economics at Baltazar Polytechnic in Zaprešić with a focus on Cultural management and I was an Erasmus business management student in Vilnius Gediminas Technical University in Lithuania. I am a certificated EU Project Manager and a graduate student of Project Management at the Baltazar, with only a graduate thesis left and I chose the “Energy self-sustaining community with a social factory model’’ as my subject.

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.
