Using the educational film "How did 1989 change Europe?", the manual with didactic materials "1989: a lesson from the past", and the texts from the online campaign #reshaping1989, the project partners organized 16 local workshops to foster transnational and intergenerational dialogue about 1989 and the ways it reshaped and keep reshaping Europe. .
The events took place in 8 European countries from October 2021 till January 2022.
Depending on the epidemiological situation in each country some of the events took place online (Croatia, Austria, Estonia) and some were held in person (Romania, Denmark, Poland, Montenegro, Greece).
At each workshop the project “Reshaping the image of democratic revolutions 1989: European contemporary perspectives and forgotten lessons from the past” and its results were presented.
The events included screening of the film and presentation of the manual with didactic materials, as well as a discussion on the texts from the online campaign #reshaping1989.
CRIDL, USB, ENRS and HIPMONT organized workshops for youth, while Documenta, Tartu University, Aarhus University, and Blockfrei focused on adult citizens with different professional profiles.
The feedback from the participants was very enthusiastic, highlighting that such events are needed to contextualize the democratic revolutions and their relevance for today's Europe.
In the scope of each local workshop, the participants were also informed about the programme „Europe for citizens“ and the opportunities it offers.
The project is co-financed by the European Union through the program “Europe for Citizens”.
