Here in Out of the Box International we are always seeking for promising young people that are willing to advocate for and contribute to a more dynamic and innovative Europe. Having new, fresh ideas and firsthand insights keeps us more aware and conscious about European youth’s needs and wishes. This year we hosted two amazing young people that have been contributing to our work and were able to develop their skills and competences through a mixture of practical experience and know-how sharing. Coming from Spain, Carlos was with us for six months, and Adriana joined us for four months. The time that they spent with us was filled not only with work, but was also marked by personal development and developing mutual understanding. We are very grateful to them, and we wish them both the best of luck and a lot of success in their future endeavors. We will surely stay in touch to follow up on their upcoming engagements and cooperate more in the future.


In Out of the Box International, I learnt how to find innovative solutions for real problems, to teamwork, coordinate with international fellows, rely on others to create synergies, but I also found out that it doesn’t feel like working when you are having fun with people around you.

My experience at OTB has enabled me to acquire the skills and competencies needed to succeed in a dynamic and complex EU environment, thanks to OTB’s focus in the European sphere.

Inspiring quote: Current problems cannot be solved with current solutions ~ you need to find Out of the Box solutions.


I felt comfortable since my arrival thanks to all my colleagues. I learned a lot of new things and I developed skills that will be very useful for my future career. Working in an international environment has broadened my perspective and showed me how, even as a beginner, you can make an impact.

I have become more mature, coming to work in a new country, and I feel more self-confident when working. Now, I am more aware of my capabilities and what I can offer, and I will use them in my future endeavours.

Inspiring quote: Out of the Box International brought me to Brussels, which was my goal when I finished my studies. Now I am leaving them, but they changed my career for better and I will forever be grateful to this amazing team.

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.
