Experiencing European Diversity
Prize winners from all National EUSTORY History Competitions get the chance to participate in the EUSTORY Youth Activities where they come face to face with varied interpretations of history. The critical confrontation with controversial aspects of European history is the basis of these EUSTORY Encounters.
Dominant groups and minorities, winners and losers, victims and perpetrators - each tell a different history and each have the right to their own story.
Working with peers, these young Europeans learn to respect this diversity and to see themselves through the eyes of others. The result is openness, understanding and tolerance in relationship with others and foreigners. EUSTORY Encounters focus on topics such as "Re:Member Europe: The Fate of Europe in Past, Present and Future", "Making Peace with History - Processes of Making, Negotiating and Maintaining Peace in Europe" and "Winds of Change – Transitions in Europe".
Since the network was founded, the EUSTORY International Office organised more than 60 youth activities for prize winners on various topics in about 20 different countries.
