1000th meeting of the CEC: presentation by Jean-Michel Folon of a watercolour on Europe

56 views

The Commission of the European Communities held its 1000th meeting. To mark this event and also the 40th anniversary of the Schuman Declaration, it wanted to focus on young people's interest in the future of the Communities. To feed this interest, she decided to invite the 1000 Elementary and Secondary Schools from the 12 Member States, to explain why they support the construction of Europe, putting a price of 1000 ECU for the award winning schools in each of the Member States. On this occasion she also received Jean-Michel Folon, who presented an original watercolour on Europe that will be used by 1992 to serve the image of the Communities in their campaigns. The first meeting of the Commission goes back to Thursday, July 6, 1967. The Commission in its present form exists since 1 July 1967, when the Brussels Treaty of 8 April 1965 on the merger of the institutions of the three Communities (ECSC, EEC and Euratom) entered into force after ratification by the six founding states.
