May 9th: Let's Celebrate Europe Day
|Venue:||FIU - Coral Gables - Miami Beach|
Europe Day held on 9 May every year celebrates peace and unity in Europe. The date marks the anniversary of the historical 'Schuman declaration'. At a speech in Paris in 1950, Robert Schuman, the then French foreign minister, set out his idea for a new form of political cooperation in Europe, which would make war between Europe's nations unthinkable.
His vision was to create a European institution that would pool and manage coal and steel production. A treaty creating such a body was signed just under a year later. Schuman's proposal is considered to be the beginning of what is now the European Union.
On the occasion of Europe Day, May 9th, and as part of our diplomacy grant "Getting to Know Europe", the Miami-Florida Jean Monnet Center of Excellence at FIU is organizing different education and cultural events at FIU, Coral Gables and Miami Beach.
