EUSTORY History Campus

Critical, young voices and diverse approaches to current issues of remembrance culture: The EUSTORY History Campus offers young authors from Europe and its neighbouring countries a public platform to make their perspectives on history and the present, society and identity visible. At EUSTORY Summits and other international EUSTORY Youth Activities, the public blog also provides a protected forum in the form of virtual classrooms in which Europemakers of tomorrow work collaboratively and across borders.

The Blog

The public blog forms the heart of the EUSTORY History Campus. Here, young Europeans share their perspectives on current questions of European history and identity, using very personal approaches and starting points: What does the grandmother’s heirloom reveal about the effects of the Carnation Revolution in Portugal? Why is the monument dedicated to the Red Army in Bulgaria’s capital currently so controversial? To what extent can a semester abroad in Belgium change one’s own view of the foreign, but also the perception of national historiography? And above all: What do these questions have to do with the present and with European identity?

In various thematic categories and journalistic formats, young perspectives are given a voice on the EUSTORY History Campus Blog and promote international dialogue on history and the present in their versatility and subjectivity.

The Editors’ Programme

For alumni from Körber-Stiftung and the EUSTORY Network, the EUSTORY History Campus offers an international qualification and participation programme. Supported by journalists and experts, they expand their editorial tools and form the operational core of the editorial team of the EUSTORY History Campus Blog.

The aim of the Editors’ Programme is to support young Europeans in expressing themselves pointedly, competently and with a broad horizon on topics of European identity and history and to pass on this ability to the authors of the blog.

Through this peer-to-peer approach, the dialogue competence within the young generation of Europeans is strengthened and European multiperspectivity can be promoted. In order to create a contemporary and sustainable basis for international understanding.

The Editors

The team of around ten editors accompanies the young authors of the blog in the conception, writing and visualisation of articles. The annually changing, international group of alumni of various EUSTORY Youth Activities not only provides advice and assistance in the writing process, but also develops innovative formats and new categories, determines thematic priorities in consultation with Körber-Stiftung and ensures that the blog is constantly up-to-date. The editors work in a virtual room in the internal part of the EUSTORY History Campus online portal.


In order to constantly develop and improve the blog, digital and physical workshops are held regularly for the editorial team. In the company of professional journalists, skills in blogging or visual storytelling are taught, the thematic agenda is set and new potentials of cross-border, journalistic cooperation are explored.

Free places in the Editors’ Team are annually communicated on the EUSTORY History Campus.
