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

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.

With sunshine ☀️outside and vacations having started, a lot of us probably think about travelling and discovering new places at this time of year. Even if maybe this year we can just travel in our imagination.

Perhaps things can help us with this kind of travel: A hairpin from Japan 🇯🇵 is the means by which a totally different world is brought to #EUSTORY #HistoryCampus blogger Varenka. Find out how this hairpin found its way to her and what it means to her in her article on the #EUSTORY #HistoryCampus blog.

“History is not just talking about the past but how it affects our present and future. And often, we don’t find history, but history finds us!”, says Decho (@decho_meeh289) from Bulgaria who found his great-grandfather’s high school diploma. 🎓 When Panayot Kirpikov received his high school diploma from the American College of Sofia in 1935, he probably couldn’t have known what impact this sheet of paper was going to have on his descendants.

Check out Decho’s blog post, where he describes how his family history shaped his identity and made him the person he is today.
