22 young Europeans from Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Russia, Slovakia and Sweden were part of this project in September 2014.Two thirds of the participants are EUSTORY prize winners, while the other third comes from the CBSS youth network.
Already as a preparation the contributors were asked to get acquainted with Instagram as a method and to take photos to visualize what identity, borders and the future of the baltic region means to them. You can find some of the photos in the room #wherewecomefrom, others are on the #balticeye Instagram page
During the week in Estonia the Young Europeans got the chance to meet locals, experts and politicians from the region to discuss their impressions and interpretations; participated in exercises about identity and life with a border and thus shaped their understanding of the concept of “Baltic Identity”. On their journey they were accompanied by a team of trainers, which supported them to find their ‘missions’, ask their questions and select their photos and – last but not least – to finalise the #balticeye exhibition.
