Throughout the months of the COVID-19 pandemic, the travel and meeting restrictions, we have striven to deliver a wide range of engaging initiatives, events, award schemes, discussion and debates about the future of Europe. We have brought together people and organisations from all corners of Europe, in a spirit of openness and inclusivity, and have asked for one thing only: to mention the #EuropeFutureFringe hashtag in their promotion and advocacy. As we look forward to gradual return to physical events, we will nevertheless remain focused on promoting a blended, virtual and on-site, approach, to our common actions on the future of Europe.
On the occasion of May 9, the day of the 71st anniversary of the Schuman declaration which inaugurated the community adventure, let us meet in parks, woods, meadows for pan-European picnics.
9th of May is Europe Day. A day when Europe is celebrated for a key milestone of its past: the “Schuman Declaration” that after WWII called for a new form of political cooperation. Today is the day when the EU Institutions “open” their doors to European citizens.
