Baltic Sea Youth Dialogue 2019: Applications are open!

This year’s Baltic Sea Youth Dialogue comes in a creative workshop format as part of the EUSTORY Next Generation Summit “Winds of Change – Transitions in Europe” organized by the Körber Foundation in Berlin, from October 15th to 19th, 2019. Full information on participating can be found here.

The transitions following 1989 had a huge impact on the states surrounding the Baltic Sea. The fall of the Soviet Union and the following re-emergence of some independent nation states was accompanied by tension, rivalry and struggles for regional hegemony. At the same time, transitions opened the way for new forms of cooperation connecting the regions surrounding the Baltic Sea.

What were the motives of early region builders to engage in the Baltic Sea cooperation?

How was this common space produced and reproduced in the political, economic and cultural sphere and how did it affect people’s lives?

Are you interested in using tools and techniques from international politics and diplomacy to get to the roots of the regional cooperation of the Baltic Sea States and identify how growing together as a region enables the individual states to find regional perspectives on global issues?

Do you want to look behind the scenes of the CBSS and contribute to the region-building milestones for the coming 30 years until 2049?

Join our workshop here!
