Open days at EU Institutions !

April 29, 2013

Funding Scheme: 2013-04-29


European Parliament will open its door on May 4th in Brussels (and May 19th in Strasbourg) for the Europe day. It is a unique opportunity to find more about where European policies are elaborated. The same day (4th of May) the Council and the Commission will be opened for public as well.


The Festival of Europe  will feature concerts, brass bands, artistic events, fun activities, exhibitions, tours of the official buildings, interactive information stands, debates, a quiz, meetings and photo opportunities with MEPs. Children will also be able to enjoy themselves in the specially-designed kids corner. This year’s open day will be all about you as 2013 is the European Year of Citizens.

Last year’s Festival of Europe was dedicated to active ageing and solidarity between the generations. The Parliament treated visitors to activities such as street-basketball, laughter-yoga or Tai Chi, chess, a children’s village as well as a concert at Place du Luxembourg in Brussels.

All other EU institutions in Brussels, such as the Council and the Commission will also be open to the public on 4 May.
