Community-based Entrepreneurship Action Learning

About Us

This process has been created by the CEAL-Network, a group of 6 organizations from 5 different European countries. The network developed and applied a model inspired by the Brazilian community transformation process 'Oasis Game', enriched by our experience in working with youth, community development, social entrepreneurship and education programs in diverse contexts. CEAL is a multi-phase model to design a program, using a collection of methods, tools and strategies for social innovation. We offer a learning experience that helps participants to create opportunities of collaboration and growth in the diversity and complexity of communities, while collaborating towards a positive local impact.

  1. It was 7pm, in an evening in late January, Zuriñe and I were driving a van through Biscay bringing resources to Merkatu, where our project was based. With me driving and Zuriñe guiding, we shared our excitement, joy and satisfaction in that we had found an oasis moment of our […]
