Europe - What do we celebrate on 9th May?

Europe - What do we celebrate on 9th May? | Communication design | Scoop.it

9th May is Europe Day. It involves all of the citizens of the EU because it celebrates the declaration delivered on 9th May 1950 by Robert Schuman. On that day five years after the end of the Second World War French Foreign Minister Robert Schuman made the initial appeal for the construction of Europe.

 

This declaration announced the creation of the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC). During the European Council in Milan in 1985 the heads of State and government decided to set 9th May as "Europe Day".

 

Celebrated each year since 1986, Europe Day is the occasion for events and celebrations that draws Europe closer to its citizens.

9 Reasons the U.S. Ended Up So Much More Car-Dependent Than Europe

9 Reasons the U.S. Ended Up So Much More Car-Dependent Than Europe | Communication design | Scoop.it
Understanding mistakes of the past can help guide U.S. transportation policy in the future.

Between the 1920s and 1960s, policies adapting cities to car travel in the United States served as a role model for much of Western Europe. But by the late 1960s, many European cities started refocusing their policies to curb car use by promoting walking, cycling, and public transportation. For the last two decades, in the face of car-dependence, suburban sprawl, and an increasingly unsustainable transportation system, U.S. planners have been looking to Western Europe.

Brittany Ortiz's curator insight, October 27, 2014 2:44 PM

This is very true and fascinating to read. It's obvious how technology and cars can change the way we view the world. When in DR this past summer, there were so many people driving a motorcycle. I didn't really get the reason why other than hearing my dad say "porque no cuesta mucho" which in English is saying "because it doesn't cost as much." It made sense, seeing the conditions outside of the resort and also having the opportunity to visit an elementary school and seeing how many students either walked or went 3 to 4 on a motorcycle to get to school. It makes sense how having a car and paying the taxes contributes in a state fixing something. It's obvious how car dependent United States is. Were so lazy to walk up the street to get milk, that we'll prefer to drive our car there. Its the realization we must all unfortunately come to.
