Using the metaphor of thinking outside the box, and within the framework of a development education project, Jovesolides created La Caja (“the box”). It is an initiative that uses the Sustainable Development Objectives to show children and youth from schools in Valencia different world realities. Its main objective is to build awareness among youth on these issues, and make them take notice of the active role they have in society. Young people can contribute to social change from their school, their family, their surroundings etc. More info: http://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/es/
How does this project work?
An innovative methodology, Creative Solution to Social Problems (SCPS), is used to do this. It was designed and tested by the association. And there are also creative dynamics and experiential experiences that help youth break their prejudices, thus tearing down the walls of their boxes.
