Europe Day is a day to celebrate peace and unity throughout Europe.
COVID-19 and the Russian invasion of Ukraine has proven to Europeans however that to protect the lives and health of citizens and preserve our economy, the European Union must take robust actions, proportionate to the dangers threatening us.
Europe Day celebrates Europe’s achievements and unity, and commemorates the signing of the Schuman Declaration on 9 May 1950. This ambitious plan to secure long-term peace in post-war Europe laid the early foundations for what is now the European Union. In 2023, Europe stands together to tackle the most important issues of our time and build a better future for all Europeans. This is our democracy in action!
