100 years ago, the First World War started in Europe. The organisers created Europe 14|14 in order to offer new perspectives an the and open up a unique possibility to actively explore what the First World War means to us as Europeans today.
The project “History Hackathon” is a 3-day workshop within the HistoryCampus, which is the central core of Europe 14|14. Up to 500 young people from Germany and other European countries meet in Berlin to examine the meaning of the First World War for themselves, for their national identity and for Europe as a common peace project. Together with partners from arts and culture, science, politics, education and theatre, 22 different workshops were developed that will take place concurrently from 8 – 10 May 2014.
The event Europe 14 | 14 is organized by the Federal Agency for Civic Education, Körber Foundation and Robert Bosch Stiftung.
