Using the #EuropeDay hashtag. Europe Day is celebrated every year on 9 May. 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. This marked the beginning of what is now the European Union.

To overcome the current Covid-19 crisis, it is vital to work together, including at a European level. Europe Day is an opportunity to reflect on the benefits of such co-operation, not least terms of the EU actions to facilitate access to vital medical supplies, limit the social and economic damage of the pandemic, and repatriate Irish citizens stuck overseas. EU membership has brought, and will continue to bring, many direct benefits to Ireland and our daily lives, and help lay the basis for a sustainable recovery.
The Europe Direct Information Centre based in Central Library, Waterford City, is one of a network of local contact points that serve as the direct link between you and the EU Institutions. The centre offers information on all sorts of subjects related to the EU including your rights and opportunities as an EU citizen and how to take advantage of them. It can provide direct responses to general inquiries and, if you have more detailed questions, signpost you to the best source of information and advice at EU, national, regional and local levels. You can contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
