ENRS at the Seminar for history educators 'Reshaping the Image of Democratic Revolutions 1989'
Between 22 and 26 September 2021 the ENRS representatives will participate in the seminar for history educators 'Reshaping the Image of Democratic Revolutions 1989' in Thessaloniki, Greece.
The event will bring together history teachers/educators and youth workers from various European countries to discuss the following issues: Is there a generation of transition in Europe? What is young people’s knowledge of 1989 and the changes that took place after that? What are the resources about the democratic changes in each country?
The Seminar will also give an opportunity to present an educational film dedicated to the democratic changes in Europe in 1989 and the transition to democracy and free market economy in the 1990s.
The project 'Reshaping the Image of Democratic Revolutions 1989: European contemporary Perspectives and forgotten Lessons from the Past', organized by Documenta - Center for dealing with the past, seeks to remind the European citizens about the democratic revolutions 1989-1990 as a period of arduous struggles for pluralistic democracy and peaceful coexistence in Europe with the aim to strengthen the contemporary commitment of the European citizens to the preservation of democratic pluralism and democratic institutions.
The project is co-financed by the European Union within the program 'Europe for Citizens'.
