My Europe Week LogoWe’re all looking forward to the launch of “My Europe” week on Monday. From May 3rd until May 9th we will be asking people from around Europe to post online their thoughts about the future of Europe. What would “Your Europe” look like in twenty, fifty or a hundred years time? If you’re a blogger, then put your post online on your own blog and send us the link here. If you don’t have a blog, but still want to take part – then you can submit your post with this form. We’d really like everyone to take part – you, your friends, your colleagues or classmates.

To help promote “My Europe Week,” we’ve added some new features to the Bloggingportal website. We’ve added a new tag to Bloggingportal – and you can follow that tag on this page here. We’ve also added a box showing what people are saying on Twitter about My Europe (using the #MyEurope hashtag).

You can also follow @Bloggingportal on Twitter and keep updated on our Facebook page.

We hope you’ll be taking part next week!

P.S. You can post in any language you want – not just English!

Welcome to the blog. This is an attempt by some of the Editors of to celebrate Europe Day online.

So firstly to explain about Europe Day. Europe Day marks the day in 1950 that Robert Schuman made his declaration on sharing the coal and steel resources of Germany and France (and other countries) to prevent further outbreaks of war. His declaration led to the foundation of the European Coal and Steel Community which was the predecessor of what was to become the European Union. Europe Day is also the flag day of the European Union.

There is also a Europe Day celebrated on May 5th. The is to mark the foundation of the Council of Europe on that day in 1949.

So enough history, what do we want to do? We want to have a blog carnival. What’s this you ask? Well basically, we want you to write about your Europe. What you want from Europe. How you want Europe to develop. We want you to make to make your declaration on what you want from Europe.

The week will run from May 3rd to May 9th.

We want both bloggers who write about the EU and those who dont to write about this, so please spread the word!

To take part, either link to your post or submit a post through this form!
