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.
