Whenever a European Living Library visits a city, this visit is surrounded by many events and gatherings of people. Ljubljana became a meeting point this time, bringing to one place citizens from different sides of Europe. These gatherings are always done with the goal to boost the dialogue between citizens from various countries and backgrounds in order to break prejudice and stereotypes between them on one hand and strengthen European citizenship and promote shared values on the other. This is what happened in Ljubljana and resulted in dialogue, exchange, debate and even some friendships. The main public activity of the project “European Living Library” in Slovenia was held on October 20th, 2022, in the Črnuče Youth Center where a large number of young people had a chance to interact with our living books from around Europe and learn something new from their life experiences. The living books that were present are people with unique identities and stories who are ready to share them. The citizens of Ljubljana from different socio-economic groups were happy to rent our books and have discussions with them.

European Living Library events are organized with the support of the “Europe for Citizens” programme of the European Union with the aim to bring Living Libraries to cities around Europe.

The journey of the European Living Library is continuing so join us next month in Belgrade for the final European living library for young citizens event.

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.
