5 May

In 1964, the Committee of Ministers decided that 5 May, the anniversary of the founding of the Council of Europe, should be celebrated as Europe Day.

9 May

The European Union celebrates Europe Day on 9 May. The date marks the anniversary of the Schuman Declaration of 1950, considered to be the first official step in the creation of what is now the European Union.

May – Europe month

For about ten years now, the Council has been joining forces with the City of Strasbourg and numerous local partners to celebrate Europe during the month of May. Various events are staged (European village, talks, sports events, exhibitions, etc.) to familiarise the public with the work of the European institutions and Strasbourg-based organisations seeking to promote European values.
