Europe Direct Karlovac, the information office of the European Union, is organizing the celebration of Europe Day and European Week in Karlovac. Europe Day is celebrated on May 9, in memory of the historic "Schuman Declaration" of 1950.
Through a series of events at several locations, on May 8 and 9, Karlovac will once again show its commitment to European ideas and policies. The central event will be on Saturday, May 8, at the Music Pavilion. Citizens will be able to see an exhibition on the origins of the European Union, and video materials about its history and projects realized in Karlovac County with the help of European money will be shown on the video wall. Family farms from the Karlovac County will also take part in the celebration of Europe Day, so visitors will be able to taste and get some products that many may not have even known were produced in the Karlovac area. This is, for example, the honey-berry spread of the Mance family farm, a honey-based product with the addition of chokeberry and elderberry, or the lavender soap of the Poturica family farm.
In this way, Europe Direct Karlovac promotes the European Green Plan, one of the main priorities of the European Commission, which aims to achieve a sustainable economy by turning climate and environmental challenges into opportunities. One of the strategies of this Green Plan is the "Field to Table" strategy, a measure that promotes a healthier and more sustainable food system, in which local family farms with their local, healthy products fit perfectly.
Ognian Zlatev, Head of the European Commission Representation in Croatia, will congratulate visitors to the Europe Day in Music Pavilion, and addresses by representatives of the Karlovac County Regional Development Agency, Mayor Damir Mandić and Deputy Prefect Martina Furdek Hajdin.
The coast of the Korana near Aquatica will also be marked by the European Union. This promenade was recently arranged as part of the EU project "Encounter with the River", and multimedia info-points were set up. On Saturday and Sunday, May 8 and 9, they will broadcast videos about the creation of the European Union. A congratulatory message on Europe Day will also be broadcast all weekend at the Trend TV building on the Market Square.
Everything is organized by Europe Direct Karlovac, the information office of the European Union, which has existed in Karlovac since 2013, and recently passed the competition again and will exist at least until 2025. By the way, it is one of the many EDIC centers in the European Union, and when it opened in 2013 - it was the 500th in Europe and the first in Croatia.
