Out of the Box International  works further to enhance current cooperation in South East Europe region and actively supports the integration of all European countries in common European project.

STRET Teacher Toolkit Project is built on the premises and experience of an already completed KA2 partnership of two NGOs (Out of the Box and ARNO) and three high schools from Lithuania, Croatia and North Macedonia.

The main objectives of the project are to train teachers, empower communities on the topic and further inspire them to advocate and gain momentum on the embedding of CSR and SE modules in Entrepreneurship education.

Following the completion of the draft toolkit, which includes relevant theoretical background, lesson plans and other activities to be implemented within entrepreneurship classes, a training event took place in Rijeka, Croatia gathering 30 teachers from all the participating schools. During the 6 day course, the teachers, selected based on their Professional Background and interests to match the goals of the project, were trained with the use of the IO “STRET Teacher Toolkit”. The Modules were designed to best transfer knowledge and know-how to the participants and included sessions on designing and running student virtual companies, exchange of best practices, innovative ideas for working with CSR and Social Entrepreneurship in class and tools for development of employability skills for students born into the digital era.

Based on the outcomes, reviews and recommendations of the participants the Toolkit will be edited and finalized in the following month.

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.
