On the occasion of Europe Day, celebrated every year on 9 May, Eurostat invites you to explore a set of infographics giving a picture of the EU and each Member State.
Europe Day commemorates the signing of the 'Schuman Declaration' on 9 May 1950. An ambitious plan to secure long-term peace in post-war Europe that is considered the beginning of what is now the European Union. The importance of working for peace in Europe is all the more evident, as we highlight our unity and solidarity with Ukraine.
2022 marks the European Year of Youth and this 9 May is an opportune moment to focus on the importance of young Europeans in building a better future that is greener, more digital and healthier.
