Project title: “What?! I’m not stressed!”

Nowadays young people are dealing with stress way more than previous young generations. General statistics worldwide show that there is a higher rate of stress issues among young people compared to adults. That is due to different issues such as peer conflict, bullying at education institutions, financial situations, career orientation that determine their future and income, and so on. With the Covid-19 pandemic being present in our lives for quite a significant period, mental health concerns increased even more.

Hence, through the project the partners will:

– Empower youth workers for the prevention and management of stress among marginalised youngsters, through the development of an inspiring and innovative Curriculum, LTTA and the Online course for youth workers’ training.

– Empower youngsters with fewer opportunities in coping mechanisms and dealing with stress and anxiety, through an innovative Toolkit with multidisciplinary approach workshops for beneficiaries.

– Exchange good practices and further develop quality strategic partnerships among partners from 5 European countries with different realities in regards to youth stress management and prevention.

Project outputs:

O1 Toolkit “What?! I’m not stressed!” – lead Realization and CNELL

O2 Curriculum “What?! I’m not stressed!” – lead LINK DMT and JuBuK

O3 E-learning course “What?! I’m not stressed!” – lead Wizard and OTB

All intellectual outputs will be produced in English, accompanied by a translation in partners’ national languages – FR, DE, IT, HR & RS, which will increase the user-friendliness of the results.

The LTTA will support more than 16 staff and youth workers in developing their competencies in delivering training for other youth workers in accordance with the intellectual outputs.

The NOTstressed project is implemented by 6 partners: JuBuK (Germany); Realization (Croatia); CNELL (Serbia); LINK DMT (Italy); Wizard, (Croatia) and OTB International (Belgium).

The project is co-financed by the Erasmus+ KA2 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.
