DEclaration of Schuman: Initiative for Revitalizing Europe, Phase 1, Activity 2

In the Head Office of the Association “Danube 1245”, on 14.10.2021, the activity 2 was realized within phase 1 of the international project “Schuman Declaration: Initiative for the Revitalization of Europe”, which is implemented within the European Program “Europe for Citizens”.

This activity refers to the acquaintance of the citizens of Sremski Karlovci with the content of the Schuman Declaration and the significance that this document has for the EU countries, as well as for our local community and our country as a whole.

The event was planned for 15 participants and 14 citizens, mostly members of the association, gathered at the meeting. The meeting was designed for 20 participants, and the somewhat weaker response was mostly due to the situation that the meeting took place during the period of stronger impact of the COVID 19 pandemic.

Citizens took an active part in the discussion that followed the broadcast of the film made during the signing of the Schuman Declaration in 1961. The discussion was about comparing the situation in international relations during the 60 years since the signing of the Declaration and the far-reaching impact this document has had over time. In a way, that this document became the basis for various European programs that even, enabled such a meeting of citizens in Sremski Karlovci.
