9th May Europe day

On 9 May 1950, Robert Schuman, the first President of the European Parliamentary Assembly, presented his proposal on the creation of an organised Europe, indispensable to the maintenance of peaceful relations.
This proposal, known as the 'Schuman declaration', is considered to be the beginning of the creation of what is now the European Union.
 Today, 9 May has become Europe Day, which is the occasion for activities and festivities that bring Europe closer to its citizens and the peoples of the Union closer to one another.

Here are some ideas to celebrate Europe Day.
 Have a look and let's choose some of them in common.
