In 1964, the Committee of Ministers decided that 5 May, the anniversary of the founding of the Council of Europe, should be celebrated as Europe Day*. It is an annual celebration of peace and unity in Europe.

See the Council of Europe website for further information on the day.

Here on the Better Internet for Kids (BIK) portal, we’ll be celebrating the work of the European network of Safer Internet Centres (SICs) in support of the day. Come back nearer the time to read more.

* There are two separate designations of Europe Day: 5 May for the Council of Europe (CoE), and 9 May for the European Union (EU).
