Our Personal Wind of Change – The Summit Reporter’s Team

Our Personal Wind of Change

The Summit Reporters’ Team

From skills to stories: 120 young Europeans from almost 30 countries came together in Berlin – this is a recipe for gripping stories about intense encounters, surprising moments and exciting, personal family histories the participants bring with them from different parts of Europe.

We as the Summit Reporters’ Team shared insights of the Summit on our blog: What happened behind the scenes, what was on the participants’ minds and which anecdote has the potential for becoming gripping news?

We experimented with new technologies and made use of multimedia features to pimp up their stories. Access to different presentation techniques encouraged the participants to make use of their full creative potential: they played with still and moving images, mixed it with sound and text in order to tell a story in a nonlinear, interactive way.

We worked closely together with the EUSTORY History Campus Editors’ Group as well as with different professionals who helped to report straight from the Summit.

Our Personal "Wind of Change"

In the course of the EUSTORY Next Generation Summit “change” was mostly discussed as political change. While conducting interviews with Summit participants from several countries, we found out that “change” has an individual meaning to each of them: From meeting new friends to accepting homosexual love or learning about and becoming active for the future of your country.
