BRUSSELS: Enjoy a day of fun and Europe when the EU institutions open their doors to mark Europe Day in May. The European Parliament will be offering a varied programme for the whole family in Brussels and Luxembourg on 4 May and in Strasbourg on 19 May, so don’t miss the chance to have fun and find out more about how the EU works and makes a difference to your life!
The Festival of Europe will feature concerts, brass bands, artistic events, fun activities, exhibitions, tours of the official buildings, interactive information stands, debates, a quiz, meetings and photo opportunities with MEPs. Children will also be able to enjoy themselves in the specially-designed kids corner. This year’s open day will be all about you as 2013 is the European Year of Citizens.
Last year’s open day was dedicated to active ageing and solidarity between the generations. The Parliament treated visitors to activities such as street-basketball, laughter-yoga or Tai Chi, chess, a children’s village as well as a concert at Place du Luxembourg in Brussels.
All other EU institutions in Brussels, such as the Council and the Commission will also be open to the public on 4 May. Click on the link on the right to find out more about what we are preparing
