About Freedom Express

    Freedom Express is a socio-educational campaign launched on the 25th anniversary of 1989 - the “year of changes”.

    The aims of the Freedom Express campaign were to:

    ■ commemorate the 25th anniversary of the collapse of communism in Central and Eastern Europe

    ■ strengthen knowledge among young people of the democratic changes that took place 25 years ago in Central Europe

    ■ provide a space for international cooperation between young and creative people

    ■ create essential open-source content which would help all interested in deepening their historical knowledge

    ■ show different historical paths and contexts, often called ‘roads to freedom’, which led to changes
