Erasmus Plus 2018 – 2020

Post-factEUal. Transforming Europe from the 1930s to the Present.

Europe has recently seen a rise of populism, a growth of nationalism, and a wave of fake news and propagandistic campaigns, which go against the European core values of democracy, solidarity, liberalism and enlightened political discourse. History has taught us that the 1930s showed some striking similarities in terms of mass manipulation, populist rhetoric and misguided patriotism. This multinational project therefore aims at helping young Europeans of the 21st century to become astute
critical thinkers in the quest for knowledge and cultural and national identity.
