Europe Day commemorates 9 May 1950, when the then French Foreign Minister Robert Schuman presented his proposal on the creation of an organized Europe to help maintain peaceful relations between European countries. This proposal, known as the ‘Schuman declaration’, is considered to be the act that created what is now the European Union. Europe Day” is therefore a celebration of peace and unity in Europe. Every year in May, the Turkey EU Association (TURABDER) also known as the European Movement -Turkey organizes a seminar to mark the day and raise awareness about the EU. This year Europe day was commemorated on May 10 at the Elite World Hotel in Istanbul. The news of this activity was on Channel NTV.
