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.

The sports industry has had a growing impact on the global economy over the last 20 years with investment in public infrastructure, mobilizing resources and creating new professions and jobs. Today it is one of the professional sectors with the most economic momentum, creating opportunities for many people who aspire to a future in the world of sports. Currently, there is an absence of research on how sport policy is entrepreneurial and innovative, something this project seeks to rectify. An entrepreneurial mindset can help sport policymakers produce better decisions about how to propose solutions to problems. The crucial roadmap of developing entrepreneurship among youth athletes’ development is dependent upon the quality of sports development programmes from grassroots level and leadership competencies of sport administrators, facilitators and coordinators.

Objectives of the project:

– To examine the role of the sports entrepreneur and entrepreneurial process in new venture creation projects;

– To develop more entrepreneurial thinking in sports-related ventures;

– Identify the characteristics of the individual sport entrepreneur;

– Demonstrate creativity and the business idea in sport entrepreneurs;

– To encourage cooperation between EU and in partnership countries;

– To build sustainable partnerships between organizations working in the field of youth and sports;

– To stimulate the development of entrepreneurial thinking;

– To explore the meaning, importance and potential of youth entrepreneurship in/through sport.

Participating organizations are coming from Serbia (Best-seller and RK Beograd), North Macedonia (Association for progress, education and lobbying) and Belgium (Out of the box International).

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