Europe Day


9 May is Europe Day and hence the perfect occasion to focus on Europe. Every year since 2012, in the beginning of May, the Minister for Foreign Affairs together with diplomats and representatives of the FPS Foreign Affairs visit about twenty schools in Belgium in order to speak about the theme: "The European Union: yesterday, today and tomorrow".

The schools are selected in all educational networks in cooperation with the provincial branches of the Europe Direct network, so that all provinces and communities as well as the Brussels Capital Region are represented.

This event is coordinated by the Directorate-general Coordination and European Affairs and by its communication unit.
