ION leadership celebrates Europe Day 2016

Written by zoo_visitor_guest / Friday 6th May 2016 / ION leadership news


Europe Day is held on the 9th of May every year.

It is a day to celebrate peace and unity in Europe and marks the anniversary of the 'Schuman declaration'. On 9 May 1950, French foreign minister Robert Schuman presented his idea for a new form of political cooperation in Europe, therefore starting the process that led to what is now the European Union. 

Europe Day Celebrations

In early May every year the EU institutions open their doors to the public to celebrate Europe Day. Also, a variety of activities and events are organised by Local EU offices in Europe and all over the world.
