Europe Day Celebrations

On 26 and 27 May Kapan and Yeghegnadzor hosted last regional Europe Day celebrations. Before the start of the celebrations, a presentation on the “Introducing Construction Materials from Plastic Waste” (IES) project was made in Kapan. In both cities people gathered to participate in different activities: enjoy good music and dance, participate in various competitions, win surprise gifts, and taste different European dishes.  The Head of the EU Delegation to Armenia, Ambassador Piotr Świtalski was among the audience.

In his speech the EU Ambassador highlighted that this year Europe Day celebrations had taken on a lighter, festive character: ‘Thank you so much for coming and sharing with us the joy of Europe Day. The motto of this year’s celebration is “Europe is here”. Europe is indeed very much in Kapan and Yeghegnadzor. We want to conduct more projects in these beautiful cities. We feel very much at home here thanks to your hospitality’.
