Baltic Sea History Project: Intention

The Baltic Sea History Project intends

to raise the awareness that there is not only one perspective on historical events, but multiple perspectives, which have to be exchanged on a basis of mutual understanding and respect

to overcome nationally confined perceptions of the history of the Baltic Sea region by promoting transnational discussions

to foster dialogues not only of experts, but also of larger groups as students, teachers etc. in concrete projects as summer schools or workshops on transnational history

to develop a new approach to mutual transnational understanding with new media as an interactive process
