The REBUILD Project consortium is proud to announce the winners of the REBUILD Local Initiative contests in Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Martinique, and Spain. These contests were a part of the REBUILD project activities and gathered teams of young people who developed and implemented these youth-led initiatives in social solidarity and green lifestyles areas, further increasing their skills and empowering them to promote active citizenship, turning them into central players to support a social “reconstruction” and update of lifestyles in each local community, easing an adaptation to the new social needs brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

National Contests were launched to select the best initiative in each partner country, choosing the winning team out of 4 youth teams that took part in each country. The winners were selected based on the implementation of initiatives and the REBUILD campaign conducted by the young people themselves which culminated in the joint effort of public votes and a jury formed by the implementing partners. The winners of the national contests are:

Volver a Ser


The 6 winning teams have been invited to participate in the International Youth Summit, which will take place on the 4-6th of May 2023 in Brussels, sharing their experience with all attendees.


The REBUILD Project Coordinator:

“The Rebuild Project really gave a chance to all groups of young people to imagine and create something that they are motivated about. It showed them that they can change the world around them and this is the most important impact of the project”.


Marko Paunovic, CEO of Out of the Box International emphasised that “the winners of the REBUILD national contests truly showed the engagement and competitive spirit of young people and the value their actions will bring to local communities. We will be proud to host them in Brussels and we look forward to getting to know the winners better”.


The REBUILD project is implemented by 7 partners from Italy (CESIE), Martinique – France (D’Antilles & D’Ailleurs), Greece (KMOP), Spain (AIIJ), Lithuania (Active Youth Association), Cyprus (CARDET) and Belgium (OTB).


The REBUILD project is co-financed by the Erasmus+ KA3 European Youth Together 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.
