Memories Across Europe

 

Memory is a great opportunity for historical knowledge, participation in civil life and social commitment. The project Memories Across Europe has the aim to realize educational activities for adults and elderly people using the autobiographical and storytelling methodology, with a focus on some key aspects such as:

  • to contribute to a common and positive construction of the European identity;
  • stimulating intergenerational dialogue and solidarity;
  • to promote the mobility of adults and elderly people across Europe.

The idea behind Memories Across Europe is that there is a very close link between storytelling practices and active citizenship. In fact, storytelling is a powerful and effective way to enhance what we call “the invisible heritage of human experience”, as it allows us to bring out and share learning and values that are preserved in our experiences.

Secondly, thanks to life stories, we can learn about social and historical phenomena, through the direct voice of the protagonists of these events.

Stories can ultimately connect people of different ages, backgrounds and cultures.
