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

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.

In April more than thousand 🇵🇱 Polish Judges signed an open letter asking the OSCE to monitor the presidential elections to secure a fair procedure, which was then planned for May 10. And now, these judges face disciplinary proceedings by their own government.

Viewed in a broader context, this reflects the dramatic changes that the Polish judiciary has undergone since the PiS-government gained power in 2015. For #EUSTORY #HistoryCampus, two Polish law students summarise the situation for us and share their point of view on what is happening in Poland.

News about past or upcoming elections in different countries have been and are present in the media lately. With them, questions about voter turnout, about who votes and what governments can do to encourage (or also hinder) people to vote came to the fore.

Today’s International Day of Democracy offers an opportunity to take a closer look at the topic of democracy and the topic of election, which are often mentioned in the same breath. #EUSTORY #HistoryCampus blogger Jonas from Denmark, for example, reflects on elections of the European Parliament and of the National Parliament last year in Denmark. If you want to find out how young people in Denmark perceived the elections and what a super hero of democracy had to do with them, read Jonas’s article on the #HistoryCampus blog.

Today and throughout the month of September, it’s a perfect time to walk through your town with open eyes and discover history around the corner: All over Europe countries celebrate the European Heritage Days where monuments that you normally cannot visit open their doors.

Join Tamara and Lilliana for virtual walks through Maribor in Slovenia and Sofia in Bulgaria and get to know some memorials there:

Today we commemorate together with people around the world the victims of the attacks against the World Trade Center 19 years ago. Painful memories are part of this day for many people and even more can remember clearly how they experienced that day.
