EUSTORY Next Generation Summit 2017
October 6 – 10, Berlin
Europe is changing. Economic crises, mass migrations and the rise of populist movements put Europe to the test. How does the next generation of Europeans confront the challenges that are reshaping our world? And how can a critical dealing with history help to protect a peaceful future of Europe?
Join the EUSTORY Next Generation Summit 2017 »Re:member Europe«!
In October 2017, you can travel to Berlin as one of 100 young Europeans and discuss your shared European history, present and future in one of six parallel workshops. Together with experts from the fields of academia, journalism, education and arts you will explore, analyse, discuss and stage different historical topics and their relevance for a changing Europe today. The results of your workshops will be presented in a public closing event on October 9 at the cultural centre RADIALSYSTEM V in Berlin.
