Romanian Academy, May 10, 2016
BIC 70 partners are organising the 4th BIC Workshop on the 10th of May 2016 in Bucharest. The central theme of the Romanian workshop is European democracy compared to the communist past. The workshop will be held in the Aula of the Romanian Academy in Bucharest and the target audience comprises about 40 young students aged between 18 and 20 coming from the University of Bucharest (Communication & Public Relations, European Studies and History).
The aim of the workshop is to involve young Romanian students in BIC project`s activities and to inspire them in preparing 5 new short videos where they compare European democracy to the communist past. Length of the videos: around 5 minutes. There is no required technical form for the videos (mobile phones, video camcorders DSLR, etc). The videos will be uploaded to the PARC surface (with ENG subtitles) on the project website: www.bic70project.eu and disseminated across Europe as non-formal education tools.

About the project
BIC 70 project is the initiative of the Committee for National Remembrance in Budapest (NEB-Hungary), in partnership with the Institute of Sociology (Romanian Academy, Romania), Spoleczna Akademia Nauk (Poland), Post Bellum (Czech Republic) and is implemented in the four partner countries in the period August 2015 ��� December 2016.
The project is promoting the history of Europe 70 years after WWII, and is fostering a sense of ownership for how the European Union develops. The project emphasises the contrast of the evolving dictatorship of the party state and its crimes against the democratic system of the EU nowadays and intends to make the citizens aware over the opportunities for societal and intercultural engagement at EU level.
The two main pillars of the project are transnational research and non-formal educational about the post war period of Eastern- and Central-Europe, with a focus on how developed the totalitarian regimes in this region. Moreover the results of the workshops and researches will be used for educational purposes all over the European Union and will draw up general conclusions for the affirmation of the European identity and belonging.
