Brussels. 09.05.2020. Each 9th May, Europe Day celebrates peace and unit in the continent. This date is the anniversary of the historic Schuman Declaration.
The Schuman Declaration served as precendent of a supranational institution in Europe. It suggested the creation of a European Community of Coal and Steel and its members would all produce these resources
The ECSC (formerly formed by France, West Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg) was the first institution from a whole series of supranational institutions that would transform to what we know nowadays as the European Union.
The objective of NAPOCTEP is to create touristic routes following the scenarios of the Independence War in Spain and Portugal. It is a young project created at the beginning of 2019 and it’s cofinanced by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through the Interreg Programme Spain-Portugal (POCTEP).
As this is a cross-border project, touristic and historical, from NAPOCTEP we wish you a happy Europe Day.
