Europe Day


Today is Europe Day. What does it mean? It means it is the day we celebrate the creation of what has become the European Union! At the start, there was this “Schuman declaration” first stone to a united Europe, in 1950 on May 9th.

On this page, you will find suggestions to read, to watch, to listen to…
