TIPP: History Campus
The History Campus gives voice to personal stories and perspectives on history and identity of young Europeans. It was initiated by the Körber Stiftung and the EUSTORY network to raise awareness and sensibility towards the interplay of history, society and current politics in order to achieve a sense of responsibility for a common Europe.
Critical thinking, creative approaches and the curiosity to develop new attitudes towards historical and social topics unite young people from more than 30 countries on three levels:
First the public blog where articles, opinion pieces and personal stories about topics related to history, society and identity are published.
Second the History Camps and online projects, which are pedagogical programmes organised by the Körber Stiftung and EUSTORY for history competition awardees from the EUSTORY Network and partner organisations.
Third an internal forum for the Alumni community to stay in touch with friends from History Camps and connect with other interested young Europeans.
Supported by more than ten international known partners, i.e. Agentur für Bildung, Borussia Foundation, Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung, Coucil of the Baltic Sea States, The Norwegian Historical Association, School Foundation of San Paolo, Fritt Ott Foundation, Narva College, Robert Bosch Stiftung and St. Pauli Theatre, the History Campus is offering broad possibilities for young people in Europe to stay connected, to discuss and talk about values and questions of History and Present. The “GeschichtsCampus” and online projects are perfect places to meet internationally known experts of a variety of academic fields, contemporary witnesses and learn more about innovative forms of historical debate. Through the Körber-Stiftung more than 10.000 pupils have been enrolled in such projects and have intense experiences within national history competitions (EUSTORY-Network).
