Every year on May 9th – Europe Day – we celebrate peace and unity in Europe. The date marks the anniversary of the historic Schuman Declaration. Traditionally, EU Institutions and local EU offices across the EU open their doors to the public in early May.  This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Europe Day is largely celebrated online. On the occasion, the EDPB and EDPS have created a special webpage. Check it out here to learn more about data protection and privacy in the EU.
