The Festival of Europe and the Year of Volunteering


This year, the European Institutions in Brussels invite you to the Festival of Europe on Saturday, May 7th (in Strasbourg will be on Sunday 8th of May).


The Festival of Europe marks the anniversary of the Schuman Declaration of 1950. Robert Schuman laid the keystone for European construction with these words:

"Europe will not be made all at once, or according to a single plan. It will be built through concrete achievements which first create a de facto solidarity."


A few years later, Robert Schuman became the first president of the European Parliament
