The EU wishes to preserve Europe's common cultural heritage and helps making it more accessible to others, as well as supports and promotes the European arts and creative industries.
With this objective in mind, the Delegation of the EU and the embassies of Germany, Spain, France, Italy and the United Kingdom commemorated Europe Day (9 May) in El Salvador with a cultural, academic and sporting agenda in order to highlight this exciting story of economic and political integration between different countries and peoples.
Under the motto 'United in Diversity', 'Europe Month' is organised in El Salvador every year, the purpose of which is to be a small testimonial to the cultural wealth of a continent that has created the largest space for peace, security, liberty and justice in the world.
The events of 'Europe Month' include a wide range of activities, most of them free of charge, including the European Film Festival, numerous concerts, gastronomic events, photography exhibitions, radio and television programmes, public conferences, family activities and sporting competitions.
'Europe Month' was conceived through the joint hard work of European embassies in El Salvador, their respective cultural forums, European schools, and countless Salvadoran institutions (public and private) that provide unconditional support for the staging of all the events.
The full agenda of 'Europe Month' is available every April on the websites and social media of the Delegation of the European Union and of the country's European embassies.
