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.

For more information, have a look at the Europa page on Europe Day 2019, which also details some of the Open Day’s that will occur in various European cities over the course of the month.

Several Aberdeen Alumni networking events have been organised to coincide with Europe day, with events taking place in several European cities. See the Current and Upcoming Events page for more information.
