Date(s) - 22/08/2022 - 28/08/2022



Once upon today… in Europe…
…is an international training format that deals with the different narratives of contemporary historical events such as 1989/90/91, its influences on identity on different levels (European, national, personal) as well as current hot topics. During this year‘s training we want to throw light on different aspects of the transition period 1989/90/91 and its long-term impact on the participating countries and the whole of Europe.

You will learn how:
• To bring together different perspectives on the same event/subject and learn practical methods to approach history
• To develop personal connections and explore how stories shape your personal identity, which stories are told in your family, community and how they influence your identity
• To use history in everyday life and various other projects
• To promote tolerance and better understanding of cultures and what helps us to better understand the perspectives and stories of others
• To develop critical thinking and grow awareness of the existence of more than one perspective
