An Exhibition on the 60th Anniversary of Regulation 1/1958

This year (2018) we celebrate the 60th anniversary of the entry into force of Regulation 1/1958 which determined the languages to be used by the EU institutions and set out the language arrangements applicable to them.

Regulation 1/1958 has played a fundamental role in the European construction, in that it allows work to be carried in each of the Member States' languages, thereby strengthening the participation of civil society as well as the EU's democratic legitimacy.

In this context the exhibition is a tribute to a multilingual Europe, while also reinforcing its values and recognising the contribution it has made.

The exhibition is being organised in cooperation with the Directorate for Translation.

This exhibition will showcase the best of Estonia's wilderness, including: landscapes, flowers, birds and big mammals. Estonia has a lot to offer nature lovers, with a landscape that is as diverse as the plants and animals that call it home. Its deserted beaches, deep forests, picturesque lakes and rivers, and mysterious swamps contain a hidden and vibrant world of birds, seals and bears.
