The project “Generation ’89” proposes to view the fall of the communist systems in Europe through the perspective of young people born in 1989. They will have the chance to speak about what happened in their countries in the past (as told by their parents or older relatives or read in books), and also about their expectations as European citizens.
Cafe Babel Sofia is one of the official partner of the "Generation 89" project which is held under the auspices of Mr Vaclav Havel.

Coming from countries with very different experiences concerning the year 1989, but also with distinct development concerning European integration, status and citizenship, the young people involved in the project will formulate their ideas about their future and the future of the European Union in a common declaration that will be drafted during the international meetings.
A delegation of young participants will present the Declaration “Generation ‘89” to EU representatives in Brussels, on the 7th June 2010.
