Songs for Change: Understanding, promoting, and implementing EU values through music

The COVID-19 pandemic restrictions and authority actions have increased public awareness and debate about the values of fundamental rights, with the increasing need to protect and promote human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, rule of law, and human rights – core EU values.

The focus of the project is on inclusion and equal opportunities through equipping the project’s main target group – young people with fewer opportunities with knowledge, techniques and competencies for a more self-determined life in which they put their values as priorities and advocate for that.

The project objectives are:

  1. EU Values: Supporting awareness raising
  2. Capacity-building: Developing competencies and attitudes, strategies and methodologies in learning through music and in producing songs and videos
  3. Music: Using music as a means of promoting ideas to peers, communities and the world to bring about change; empowerment tool
  4. Advocacy: Influencing policies and enabling awareness creation and motivation

The partners will develop a learning model and learning materials to promote EU values through music. These resources include handbooks, a video tutorial program, webinars, workshops and a podcast-based radio station.

The project results will be available in five languages (English, Greek, Italian, Portuguese, and Slovak) for free download from the project website.

The project will run from June 2022 to May 2024.

The project is implemented by 7 partners: INTERNATIONAL E AKADEMIE BERLIN FUR INNOVATIVE PADAGOGIK PSYCHOLOGIE UND OKONOMIE GGMBH ‘’INA’’ (Germany), Associazione di Promozione Sociale YEPP Italia (Italy), Zdruzenie PRE LEPSI ZIVOT (Slovakia), DIKTIO GIA TA DIKAIOMATA TOU PAIDIOU (Greece), Young Educators – European Association (Portugal), Het Wilde Westen (Netherlands) and OUT OF THE BOX 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.
