From the 1948 Hague Congress to the Conference on the Future of Europe, look back to historic events of Europe’s integration with the House of European History! On 9 May, the House of European History in Brussels will organise a panel debate (onsite and online) to reflect about the events that have inspired the idea of a united Europe. Before the debate, the House will offer an onsite guided visit on European integration. Read more on the programme and registration.
4. European History Online
European History Online is a website that examines 500 years of modern European history and explores intercultural exchange. Its articles in German and English can be searched by ‘Thread’ (broad themes such as ‘European Media’, ‘Alliances and Wars’ or ‘Models and Stereotypes’), geographical area, topic (such as ‘Arts’, ‘Religion’ or ‘Politics’), and time periods (15th-21st centuries).

You can follow - and share! - the Europe Day celebrations on social media with the hashtag #EuropeDay.
6. The Digital Storytelling Festival
The Digital Storytelling Festival run by the Europeana Initiative and the Heritage Lab encourages cultural heritage professionals, educators, creatives, and students to boost their storytelling skills and tell stories exploring culture. In 2023, the two-day online event runs on 9-10 May. With sessions on mental health and wellbeing, Black history, multisensory storytelling, artificial intelligence and more, we hope to inspire participants to create connections between art, culture and history and the contemporary world. It is the perfect place to gain inspiration on how to tell stories about heritage - including the story of Europe. There’s still time to register and join in!
