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.

Yoga is incompatible with Christian faith, sharing a spoon with other people won’t transmit Covid as long as it’s part of the Holy Communion and homosexuality is a sin.

These and other dubious statements of the Greek Orthodox Church are unacceptable to lots of young Greeks. To many of them, the church’s practices seem out of date and are incompatible with the values the young generation commits to.

At the same time, an overwhelming majority of Greeks considers religion as important – especially the older ones and those living in rural areas. Is Greece’s population divided in this issue? Can we expect a generational change in the country of ancient gods?

Anna and Maria talked with our author @lrumenova about their perception of the (un)importance of religion in the daily life of Greece’s young generation and explain how differences in religious views can cause conflicts within families.

Music often unites people. However, are there circumstances under which music divides?

What happens if you combine music with (national) identity and collective memory? Milena from Serbia wondered about this question and started a little research, asking family and friends: “If you could represent your national identity with one song, which song would it be?”

Read about the discussion this question provoked and Milena’s reflections on the #EUSTORY #HistoryCampus blog.
