The European Union celebrates Europe Day* on 9 May. The date marks the anniversary of the Schuman Declaration of 1950, considered to be the first official step in the creation of what is now the European Union. See the Europa 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).
