9 May marks the anniversary of the signing of the historic Schuman Declaration in 1950, which introduced the creation of a European Community and laid the foundations of the European Union. As we celebrate Europe’s unity, we share six places you can find stories about Europe - and develop your skills to tell them!
Each year, 9 May marks Europe Day and the anniversary of the 'Schuman Declaration', which, in 1950, saw the beginning of the process of building the European Union. That was a huge moment of change for Europe. And today, the European Union is facing another great time of change, a time in which it wishes to use the richness and the lessons of its history and heritage to shape a future that makes Europe better for everyone. Here’s how you can get involved.
When a long-planned exhibition celebrating the 70th Anniversary of the Schuman Declaration could no longer take place in European cities, the European Parliament Archives worked with Europeana to bring the exhibition to life online – in 24 languages. We speak to Ludovic Delepine, Head of Archives at the European Parliament, about how it all came together.
To commemorate Europe Day 2020, on the 9th of May a webinar dedicated to digital cultural heritage was organised. This webinar brings together two of the smallest island nations of the EU – Malta and Cyprus.
