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.

As part of project activities, Out of the Box International, together with partners from Belgium, UK, Serbia and North Macedonia have successfully implemented a TC for youth workers and youth radio practitioners.

The 5-day training activity for youth workers and youth radio practitioners was aimed towards supporting them to develop competences to use the radio in youth work. The main idea of the TC was to eventually develop an integrated and adaptable methodology (approach and tools) for using radio in making the voices of young people heard. As follow up, the participants will have the chance to apply their newly gained SKAs through workshops for youth workers in their communities at local and national level. The training was carried out online in cooperation of all partners and was based on non-formal education. Furthermore, the training was based on a previously compiled set of programme guidelines (YOUth on AIR Toolkit), devised by the project expert team and created based on modern patterns of education, such as NFE, active learning, tailored to special learning needs and styles of participants, new technologies, innovative combination of practical and theoretical knowledge, etc.

“YOUth on AIR – developing active participation and intercultural dialogue among youth through online media tools” – is a 12-month strategic partnership project aimed at developing the quality of support systems for youth activities and the capabilities of civil society organisations in the youth field through using digital radio as the main tool. The project intends to strengthen and build – through training and exchange of good practices – competences of young people in digital media and practice their right for freedom of expression by providing space for youngsters from different ethnic and religious backgrounds to jointly partake in a learning activity that will enhance their digital skills, knowledge and capacities.

 

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.
