About the EUSTORY History Campus

This is a space for young perspectives on current events, identity, history and its relevance for the present.

The EUSTORY History Campus gives voice to personal stories and perspectives on history and identity of young Europeans. It was initiated by Körber-Stiftung and the EUSTORY Network to show the interplay of history, society and current politics in order to achieve a sense of responsibility for a common Europe.

Critical thinking, creative approaches and the curiosity to develop new attitudes towards historical and social topics unite young people from more than 30 countries.

On the public blog young EUSTORY History Campus authors publish articles, opinion pieces and personal stories about topics related to history, society and identity.

During EUSTORY SummitsHistory Camps and online projects organised by Körber-Stiftung and EUSTORY, prize winners from EUSTORY history competitions meet and work together to use history as a laboratory for international understanding.

EUSTORY is an informal, international network of non-governmental organisations carrying out historical research competitions for youth in 25 European countries. It creates space for encounters and facilitates dialogue on shared European history and future in regular international youth seminars. Eventually it promotes the significance of history for a common European future through international conferences and workshops. EUSTORY was established in 2001 and since then more than 200,000 young Europeans participated in national EUSTORY history competitions. The EUSTORY prize winner activities and meetengs as well as EUSTORY Alumni projects set the basis for the EUSTORY History Campus. For more information see http://eustory.eu/about-us.html

The EUSTORY History Campus is a platform for young Europeans who are interested in history and want to enter into a dialogue about history with their peers. In the public section of the platform we post articles about selected topics related to European history and identity. On this platform we also offer seminars and workshops for young Europeans from our networks and provide a safe space for exchange and discussions in the password-protected area and closed groups on our platform.

A warm welcome to our new partners in Armenia 👋: With great enthusiasm and energy, DVV International Armenia and the NGO “Hazarashen” Armenian Center for Ethnological Studies plunged into the adventure of organising the first Armenian history competition!

🔎 Bringing in expertise in ethnographic and oral history research, the NGO “Hazarashen” is well equipped to prepare teachers and students to approach a complex topic for the current competition: Its topic “Between Forgetting and Remembering: Soviet and Post-Soviet Memory Landscape in Families and Communities” encourages students to engage with the Soviet heritage in their surroundings.

We wish our partners in Armenia much success and the tutors and students much curiosity and enthusiasm in delving into the muted stories of buildings, monuments and memorials from the Soviet and Post-Soviet era! We are curious to take a glance at the competition entries to be handed in until April 2022!

The pilot history competition in Armenia is organised within the framework of the cooperation project “History Competitions 3.0” which was initiated by DVV International, in cooperation with @koerberstiftung and with the financial support of @auswaertigesamt.
