European Day History
Europe Day celebrates the peace and unity in Europe. Following the trauma of World War II, Robert Schuman outlined his vision of an interconnected Europe, one single community to avoid future conflict. The speech was seen as the beginning and foundation of what would later become the European Steel and Coal Community and finally evolve into the European Union.
Europe Day is celebrated annually on 9 May annually, a day that marks the anniversary of the historical ‘Schuman Declaration,’ which set out his idea for a new form of political cooperation in Europe to make war unthinkable.
