Every May 9, Europe Day celebrates the peace and unity of the continent. The date is the anniversary of the historic Schuman declaration. In a speech delivered in Paris in 1950, French Foreign Minister Robert Schuman set out his idea of a new form of political cooperation that would make war between European nations unthinkable
Faced with an exceptional situation like the one we are experiencing and given the impossibility of being able to hold meetings, debates or other events to celebrate Europe Day, we propose that you discover another way of celebrating it.

Exhibition “Europe and the Europeans 1950 – 2020: 70th anniversary of the Schuman Declaration
We invite you to visit this online exhibition designed by the EU Historical Archives to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Schuman Declaration. In 1950 the French Foreign Minister Robert Schuman, expressed the need for a United Europe. This exhibition traces the beginnings of the European Union and recalls the 70th anniversary of the Robert Schuman Declaration on 9th May 1920.
It is a joint online activity in which each documentation centre links panels, posters and facsimiles offering a tour of key moments in the EU’s beginnings and history.
