Europe Day celebrates the EU’s achievements. It is also a chance to find out more about the EU, with events and activities for all ages.
On 9 May 1950, Robert Schuman, France’s foreign minister, called on France, Germany and other European countries to pool their production of coal and steel.
This was the first move towards the creation of what is now known as the European Union – 27 countries united in their respect for freedom and the rule of law while recognising and valuing the diversity of EU citizens. The anniversary of Schuman’s declaration is celebrated as Europe Day.
The student’s from IES Hermanos Machado joined to the celebration with the performance of the European Hymn, a poster Exhibition about European Countries and a Ghymkana
