Europe Day, held on 9 May every year, celebrates peace, solidarity and unity in Europe. It marks the anniversary of the historical 'Schuman declaration'. At a speech in Paris in 1950, Robert Schuman, the then French foreign minister, set out his idea for a new form of political cooperation in Europe, which would make war between Europe's nations unthinkable. This year, against the background of a global health crisis, international partnerships and global solidarity makes more sense than ever.
