Europe Day


Europe Day, held on 9 May every year, celebrates peace and unity in Europe. The date marks the anniversary of the historic 'Schuman declaration' that set out his idea for a new form of political cooperation in Europe, which would make war between Europe's nations unthinkable. Schuman's proposal is considered to be the beginning of what is now the European Union.


Today, the importance of working for peace in Europe is all the more evident, as EU highlights unity and solidarity with Ukraine.
