Europe Day

The 5th May 2015 is Europe Day, and in coordination with The Europe Direct Information Centre the GCfE would like to invite anyone interested to attend the event at the Library of Birmingham. Europe Day commemorates 9 May 1950, when the then French Foreign Minister Robert Schuman presented his proposal on the creation of an organised Europe, to help maintain peaceful relations between European countries. Known as the ‘Schuman declaration’, this proposal is considered to be the act that created what is now the European Union. This event will be aimed at individuals and businesses in Midlands and will showcase how best to access support and advice on European matters. Partner organisations will also be present for advice, support and networking on European matters.

Two seminars will be taking place during the day.
