Each year on 9 May, the Europe Day is celebrated across Europe and beyond to mark the anniversary of the 1950 Schuman Declaration, which is considered to be the beginning of what is now the European Union.
In the framework of the 2021 edition of the Europe Day, the ENI CBC Med Branch Office for the Western Mediterranean, in collaboration with the Europe Direct Valencia Office(Spain), is organizing an online debate among young people from both sides of the Mediterranean Sea.
The event, to take place on 10 May, aims at collecting the views of youngsters on their priorities for the future, their expectations towards the European Union and how they see the relations between the European Union and its Southern Neighbours in the context of the “New agenda for the Mediterranean” recently approved by the European Council.
ENI CBC Med is the largest Cross-Border Cooperation initiative implemented by the EU under the European Neighbourhood Instrument (ENI). The Programme brings together the coastal territories of 14 EU and partner countries in view of fostering fair, equitable and sustainable development on both sides of the EU’s external borders.
