Europe Day held on 9 May every year celebrates peace and unity in Europe. 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.

AVSI staff took part to the celebrations in many countries of the world, in Kenya, Ecuador, Myanmar, Republic of the Congo, South Sudan, Palestine, Mexico, Mozambique, Burundi, Lebanon, Ivory Coast, Uganda, Haiti, Brasil.
