Write your own Schuman Declaration & win a trip to your favourite EU capital! [applications open until April 20, 2020]

2020 marks the 70th anniversary of the Schuman Declaration that paved the way for the first European Community. On 9 May 1950, Robert Schuman, French Minister of Foreign Affairs, inspired by Jean Monnet, presented a plan for building the first supranational European community. This ambitious declaration has remained in European history as the speech that has launched European integration.

Do you want to reshape European integration and give the Union a new face? We invite you to draft your own Schuman 2.0 Declaration addressing the challenges of modern Europe. Be bold and imaginative. Participation in the contest is open until 20 April 2020 latest.

Submitted declarations will be show-cased on the Schuman 2.0 website and will be presented, discussed and awarded in a final event, a Citizens Summit on 8th May 2020 in Brussels. The prize to the awarded declaration author will consist of a week-end trip (flight and 2 nights in a nice hotel) to the capital city of a member state of the European Union as chosen by the winner, for two persons.
