poster EU speaks your language

This exhibition travels back in time to 1958, to the first legal act of the EEC/EU, to highlight its historical significance.

Regulation 1/1958 has played a key role in building the EU in that it allows work to be carried out in each of the Member States' languages. In doing so it strengthens the participation of civil society and boosts the EU's democratic legitimacy.

"The EU speaks your language" was produced by the European Economic and Social Committee in September 2018 to mark the 60th anniversary of Regulation 1/1958 entering  into force. It was designed to be a touring exhibition, as a tribute to a multilingual Europe.

The Bruxelles-Europe branch of the Alliance Française is its fourth stop.

Duration: 15 March - 17 May 2019

An open debate is being organised hosting the Belgian philosopher Philippe Van Parijs.

The debate will take place on 3 April, at 12.30 p.m.
