To mark the commemoration of the First World War, the Europe 14|14 festival is making Berlin the meeting place in May 2014 for young Europeans to look back – and think forward – together.
Within the framework of this project, Foreign Minister Steinmeier will be meeting 400 young historians from 40 European and North African countries on Friday, 9 May. After the opening speech, Foreign Minister Steinmeier will take part in a panel discussion to debate the importance of the First World War both for the young people themselves and for national identities and the European peace project.
History Campus – Europe 14|14 is a European project organised by the Federal Agency for Civic Education, the Körber Foundation and the Robert Bosch Stiftung, as well as numerous other partners. The festival will provide an extensive supporting programme throughout the city over a period of four weeks under the motto: “Look back, think forward”.
