iBOX (Inclusion Box)

Welcome to iBOX! A project coordinated by LLLP which wants to contribute to building more inclusive NGOs and CSOs.


Logo of iBOX: Inclusion Box, representing the letters I, B, a drawing of a box for O and X.

The project aims at ensuring more inclusive organisations, more inclusive education approaches and actions, through a capacity building process to better face and respond to current and future societal challenges.


iBOX consists of an interdisciplinary, bottom-up process, involving key stakeholders in the design of innovative training resources collected in an online platform with the goal of supporting the digital transition, access and participation in learning processes and inclusion and diversity strategies in the sector. These are key issues the consortium will work on to foster inclusive and innovative management methods and pedagogical approaches among educational staff and managers.


What and why?

The project will provide a solution for education and training providers, NGOs and CSOs to address their needs in terms of new capacities to meet new and continuing challenges, to remain and become more inclusive and diverse, while embracing the principles of a new, more digital way of working.


Therefore, iBOX wants to:

  • Increase the quality of the work, activities and practices of the educators and staff in educational establishments/ CSOs involved and;

  • Build their capacity to work transnationally and cross-sectorally on common needs and priorities in education and training, such as the inclusion and enhancement of diversity at all levels and in all aspects of their work.


Core themes

There are three core areas within the project:

  1. access and participation in learning processes, supporting learning providers to promote active participation and civic engagement through learning.

  2. inclusion and diversity strategies, supporting learning providers to improve their current practices and become/remain inclusive and diverse.

  3. digital transition and blended work methods, supporting learning providers to adapt to the digital transition


For who?
  • Primary target groups: Adult educators and staff. Within these target groups, different organisations with specific profiles are included. For each organisation involved directly or indirectly, the proposal reaches different profiles (officers, educators, managers, etc.).


  • Second target groups: Education and training providers and network of providers’ organisations. This includes providers of formal, non-formal and informal education at national/regional/local levels.


Main outputs

1. A Compendium of inspiring practices on the three core themes, collecting practices and guidelines identified on social inclusion in CSOs and NGOs.
