Welcome to visit the Commission at the Open Door Day on Saturday 8 May
Every year the European Commission opens up its doors to the public to celebrate the Europe Day (9 May). This year is not an exception and on the Open Door Day, Saturday 8 May, anyone interested can visit the main Commission building (Berlaymont), along with other buildings of the Council and the Parliament. Information stands, interactive games, performances and music are some of the elements that meet the visitors during the day and the event usually attracts around 30 000 people.
The Commission's activities in the area of development and trade will be showcased at the Europe's External Cooperation stand. The EU's actions to achieve the Millennium Development Goals will be the focus at this ecofriendly stand, which will offer a colourful and animated atmosphere. The visitors will have the opportunity to take part in a quiz and check their knowledge about the Millennium Development Goals and the EU's work to fight poverty in the world.
Welcome to join us the 8 May!
