The 9th of May is Europe Day. Marking the anniversary of the Schuman declaration, it is a celebration of the effort to bring about peace through a new form of political cooperation between the nations of Europe. In 1950, French Foreign Minister Robert Schuman proposed the creation of an institution to manage the production of coal and steel across the nations, a move that is considered to be a major step towards the formation of the European Union that we know today.
