Generation 89

Generation 89

Second EUNIC project, led by the Romanian Institute and financed by European Union is an inter-cluster project, lasting a year (fall 2009 – fall 2010), commemorates the collapse of communist systems in Europe through the lens of those born in 1989. The project’s main features were four international meetings gathering young Europeans in Brussels, Bucharest, Prague and Warsaw. Young people from Czech Republic, Romania, Poland, Belgium, UK, Germany, Austria, Bulgaria and Hungary have lived their lives in distinct historical contexts. One of the objectives was to bring some of these young people together and to offer them a space to share and discuss experiences and expectations for their future. To attain this outcome, four two- day international meetings were held in Brussels, Bucharest, Prague and Warsaw.
