About the project
The “5030Remember: from WW2 to the end of communism” project refers to the remembrance of 80 passing since the beginning of WW2. The end of WW2 has led to 50 years of authoritarian regimes in many central and eastern European countries, culminating with the democratic revolutions of 1989.
More than 30 years went on since then, and many citizens, especially youth, have a limited understanding of the implications of WW2 on Europe and in building a democratic EU. Also, European youth of less than 30 have never lived under authoritarianism, taking for granted the struggle that their close ascendants have faced. It’s hence in our duty to pay tribute to those who sacrificed themselves for our well being, not only through re-education of youth but also through remembrance. The latter is particularly important in acting against the rise of populism, and hate speech, which could generate a climate comparable to the one that has preceded WW2.
Seminar format & Agenda
Building on the findings of a survey conducted in all the partner countries in 2020 and 2021 regarding young peoples’ knowledge on the implications of the WW2 and post-war authoritarian regimes on today’s European democracy, the 5030Remember Seminar will take place between 2nd – 11th of November 2021, consisting of asynchronous tasks (2-5 November) and 4 sessions of video meetings.
The Seminar is aimed at:
- Human rights education practitioners from the EU member states;
- Youth workers with experience in human rights education;
- Young people from a EU member state with a strong interest in human rights education, history and remembrance.
The participation in the seminar is free of charge and will be rewarded with a digital participation certificate. There is no age restriction.
Conference format & Agenda
The conclusions of the Seminar will feed into the final Conference of the project, which will take place in Bucharest, Romania, on December 17th, 2021. The conference will take place in a hybrid format, with 60 participants present on-site and 60+ joining online.
