For more than 20 years, all European Institutions organise an Open Day in recognition of the Schuman Declaration of 9 May 1950 and give citizens the opportunity to get acquainted with the EU institutions.
This year the event will take place on the 28th of May 2016. In the commission, stands will be concentrated in and around the Berlaymont building.
The Directorate General for Agriculture and Rural Development will take part in the event with a common stand with the Directorate Generals for Health and for fisheries under the theme "From farm to fork: healthy food for our future".
Through fun and educational activities, the stand will demonstrate that the EU is committed to ensure safe and high quality food, produced in a sustainable way, to all European citizens.
