Europe Day on 9 May commemorates the date of the Schuman Declaration, which started Europe on the path to today’s European Union.
70 years after the Schuman Declaration, Europe faces a crisis that makes standing together more important than ever.
This year, Europe Day is not only a chance to think about the Europeans that made history in 1950 but shine a spotlight on those who are making history today and see this solidarity in action.

Find out more about the EU tackling the crisis, learn about the Schuman Declaration and see European solidarity in action in the face of Covid-19.
