Shaping Europe event at European Parliament

#Shaping Europe - Europeana 1914-18 & 1989 event

On 2nd and 3rd December, Europeana is organising the event 'Shaping Europe' in the European Parliament. On those days, MEPs and Parliament staff are being invited to bring their WW1 and/or 1989 related memorabilia & stories and have them digitised on the spot. 

For the past three years, Europeana 1914-18 and Europeana 1989 have worked with citizens and our cultural institutions across Europe to create online archives that provide a unique perspective on these two seminal events, which can be shared worldwide. The two collection days at the Parliament, add to 150 held across Europe over the last 4 years which have directly connected citizens to their cultural heritage.

Europeana has planned social media activity for the two days.  They would like to invite you to join in the campaign and if you have any interesting content related to the First World War or the events in 1989, please tweet about it on 2nd and 3rd December using the hashtag #ShapingEurope, and Europeana will retweet via their @Europeanaeu, @Europeana1914 and @Europeana1989 Twitter accounts.
