on December 19, 2012, 10:24
Eustory-France, a History Competition, was officially inaugurated in Paris on Wednesday 14 November2012. Six young people from several European countries took part in a debate with Valéry Giscardd’Estaing, former president of the French Republic (1974-1981) and Jacques Delors, former president of the European Commission (1985-1995) and founding president of Notre Europe – Jacques Delors Institute.
The encounter was inspired by the meeting between Helmut Schmidt and six young people organised by the Körber Foundation in Hamburg on 14 April 2011. The debate was attended by almost 1,000 people, mostly high school students, who got the opportunity to ask questions in their turn. The debate was moderated by Arnaud Leparmentier, journalist (Le Monde).
The debate was organised in partnership with: Eustory-Network, Association des professeurs d’histoire-géographie (APHG), European youth parliament, Université Paris 4 – Sorbonne, Maison de la mutualité, Le Taurillon and Toute l’Europe.eu.
