Announcing an essay and drawing competition "My Declaration of Schumann"

On May 9th is #EuropeDay -, 1950 Robert Schuman, French Minister of Foreign Affairs, presented a declaration known today as the Schuman Declaration, the first step of Europe Integration.
This day marks the 71th anniversary of the historic day when Robert Schuman, French Minister of Foreign Affairs, put forward the then revolutionary proposal for the creation of the European Coal and Steel Community.
In 1950, Europe was still trying to rise from the ashes of the Second World War and heal the wounds of years of conflict between France and Germany. European diplomats at the time rightly advocated the unification of the economic interests of the two states - initially - and then of all those who would join the Community, as the best guarantee for maintaining peace on the old continent. The success of the European Coal and Steel Community and its evolution into the European Union, as younger generations know it, is being called into question.

Sceptics are growing in number, nationalist and intolerant voices are getting stronger and many are looking forward to disengagement from the EU. Wanting to explore the knowledge and beliefs of contemporary adolescents, citizens of the EU, we have developed together with educational organisations from Spain, Bulgaria and Poland, the European project "New Schuman Declaration – Cross Generational Conversation about a NEW Europe".
In this context, we conducted a web seminar, addressed to high school students. The aim of the webinar was for the children to learn the history of the establishment of the ECSC and later the EEC and the EU, to familiarize themselves with the text of Schuman's declaration itself. On the occasion of the anniversary of the Schuman Declaration, we invite pupils to share with us in essay or poem poem format of their thoughts on the course of the European Union.
