Celebrating 72 years since the Schuman Declaration
On 9 May 1950, the signing of the Schuman Declaration marked the creation of the European Coal and Steel Community. It was the first in a series of supranational European institutions that would ultimately lead to the European Union.
To commemorate this important day for Europe, Member States and various EU institutions in Brussels, Luxembourg and Strasbourg have planned online and on-site activities. You can explore these events on the interactive map of europeday.europa.eu, while learning more about the role of EU institutions and their ongoing activities. This year, the events pay special tribute to the courage of the Ukrainian people and showcase our unity and solidarity with Ukraine.
