What is Europe Day?

On 9 May 1950 the first move was made towards the creation of what is now known as the European Union.

On that day, the French Foreign Minister Robert Schuman 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.

The European Community and ESA share a common aim: to strengthen Europe and benefit its citizens.
