For Europe Day, the European Parliament is organising a variety of activities including guided tours of the exhibition “VOTE: A European story. Ten elections that shaped our world”. Curated by the Jean Monnet House, this exhibition explores the unfolding of supranational democracy in Europe. In June 2024, citizens from all European Union Member States will be called to elect their representatives to the European Parliament. It will be the 10th time such elections have been held since the first direct election to the European Parliament in 1979. It is therefore a fitting occasion to reflect on how Europe’s supranational democracy has unfolded, from the origins of democratic participation on the continent to the step-by-step building of a true European polity. This time travel is not just an opportunity to get acquainted with things past, but also a way of helping you make an informed choice at the polling station! Democracy is vital; your say is crucial. The guided tours will take place every hour, starting from 11am to 4pm and will be available both in French and English. Check the website of the European Parliament with the Europe Day 2024 programme for more information.
