Why a Europe Day?

Europe Day (9 May) celebrates peace and unity in Europe. The date marks the anniversary of the historical 'Schuman declaration'. At a speech in Paris in 1950, the French foreign minister, Robert Schuman, set out his idea for a new form of political cooperation in Europe, which would make war between Europe’s nations unthinkable.
His vision was to create a European institution that would pool and manage coal and steel production. A treaty creating such a body was signed just under a year later. Schuman’s proposal is considered to be the beginning of what is now the European Union.

Europe Day activities around the globe

EU Delegations will organise in cooperation with Member States' embassies in their host countries activities on the theme of Europe in the World. Lectures, competitions, film festivals and other events will demonstrate the best the EU has to offer.
