Celebrate Europe Day with us
The history of the Europe Day
The idea behind the Schuman Declaration was almost visionary: for lasting peace to prevail in Europe, enemy states must become friendly states, Europe must become a place of encounter and common ground. States, regions and people all over Europe must cooperate, act together and exchange ideas with each other so that not only lasting peace but also steadily growing prosperity for all can be achieved.
Since then, the longest epoch of peace and prosperity in Europe has ever existed.
In order to create a worthy monument to this idea, which was first articulated on May 9, 1950 and became reality only a little later, Europe Day is celebrated every year on May 9. For EU employees it is an official holiday. But also Kosovo and Luxembourg have already introduced Europe Day as an official holiday.
Because Europe Day stands for the departure into a Europe of peace, cooperation, diversity and tolerance, we want to ensure with our actions that this day has more visibility throughout Europe.
