From skills to stories: 120 young Europeans from almost 30 countries came together in Berlin – this is a recipe for gripping stories about intense encounters, surprising moments and exciting, personal family histories the participants bring with them from different parts of Europe.
We as the Summit Reporters’ Team shared insights of the Summit on our blog: What happened behind the scenes, what was on the participants’ minds and which anecdote has the potential for becoming gripping news?
We experimented with new technologies and made use of multimedia features to pimp up their stories. Access to different presentation techniques encouraged the participants to make use of their full creative potential: they played with still and moving images, mixed it with sound and text in order to tell a story in a nonlinear, interactive way.
We worked closely together with the EUSTORY History Campus Editors’ Group as well as with different professionals who helped to report straight from the Summit.
