People in Europe have always corresponded and travelled to exchange their ideas and inventions. And they are still doing so. Every European is part of this ongoing network of European civilization.
In this Essay Contest 2014, classroom4.eu focuses on the European connected world before 1914 as a development of all along the 19th century. These connections were made by technique but also by personal relationships of scientists, artists and reformers, crossing all national borders which are cut suddenly off by the outbreak of the war.
