Marking the anniversary of the 1950 Schuman Declaration, EU Delegations around the work celebrate in May peace and unity in Europe, with a rich variety of activities and events.

In Brussels, across the EU member states and around the world, Europe Day on 9 May is the occasion to celebrate peace and unity in Europe.  The date marks the anniversary of the Schuman Declaration of 1950, when the French foreign minister Robert Schuman proposed a joint authority to oversee French and German production of coal and steel.

Each year, the EU institutions in Brussels open their doors to the public for celebrations and activities (this year on 5 May), while EU Delegations around the world organise activities and events throughout the whole month of May.

You will find below a list of all activities taking place in EU Delegations, with a particular focus this year on European cultural heritage.
