At the EUSTORY Next Generation Summit from 28 September to 02 October 2023, more than 100 young history enthusiasts from 23 countries came together in Prague to follow the motto “Dialogues to Remember”: They exchanged perspectives on questions related to current challenges, negotiated forms of remembrance culture in the 21st century and tested tools to better navigate to a peaceful future…
Dialogues to Remember
In Autumn 2023, it was time to talk – and to meet! After three years of covid-related digital EUSTORY Youth Activities, the EUSTORY Next Generation Summit came back in a new shape: Following the motto “Dialogues to Remember”, the international youth history festival welcomed more than 100 winners of 23 national history competitions belonging to the EUSTORY Network. In six different workshops facilitated by various international partners, as well as in various intercultural group activities, the participants aged 16 to 25 dealt with history and its legacies, talked about identities, and discussed their worries related to a gruelling war in Europe, but also shared their visions for a peaceful future.
What are the chances and risks of artificial intelligence when it comes to historiography and remembrance? How to deal with history cast in stone? Can dialogue and creativity really transform a conflict into peace? Which values and narratives unite the European youth across borders? These and other questions were debated and put on the test by using diverse methods and tools.
What remains? Check out the workshop results in form of videos, podcasts and more impressions of the EUSTORY Summit 2023 below!
