Look back, think forward

On the centenary of the beginning of the First World War, Berlin was made the European meeting point to “look back and think forward”. Europe 14|14 was a joint project by the Federal Agency for Civic Education (bpb) in cooperation with the Koerber-Foundation, the Robert Bosch Stiftung and numerous other sponsors and partners. EuroClio functioned as one of those partner organisations.

The focal point of the Europe 14|14 festival in the spring of 2014 was formed by the HistoryCampus Berlin from 7 until 11 May 2014. Up to 500 young people from all over Europe met at the Maxim Gorki Theatre in Berlin to investigate the personal significance of the First World War for young Europeans, for their national identity and for modern day Europe as a joint peace project. The main focus lay on creative approaches and transnational exchanges.
