EUSTORY Youth Activities 2021

In 2021, EUSTORY organises two digital programmes bringing together young people from Europe and beyond to work on questions of history, identity and their perspectives on the past and present. For a duration of several weeks, 38 participants from 19 countries will e-meet in two different online programmes.

 

#30PostSovietYears: Phantom Pasts or Everyday Present?
(18 August – 2 October 2021)

Thirty years after the dissolution of the Soviet Union and socialist regimes in Central and Eastern Europe, young people with a biographical link to these regions reflect on their affiliations with the past theoretically and practically. By exploring physical and mental traces of Soviet and East European socialism(s) in different countries, the participants will find out how differences in legacies and identities materialise in urban landscapes across the post-socialist space.

The Language of Democracy
(4 September – 23 October 2021)

The digital programme “The Language of Democracy”, which uses the educational method of Betzavta, offers a space for young Europeans to experience conflictual situations within a group and learn to democratically cope with dissent. Taking history as a starting point, and by engaging with different perspectives on specific intercultural conflicts, participants will reflect their habitual beliefs and stumble across own assumptions and hidden stereotypes.
