Open Day at the European Institutions

The Council of the European Union invites you to visit its Justus Lipsius building at 175 Rue de la Loi/Wetstraat, 1048 Brussels, on Saturday 7 June from 10 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. The theme of this year's Open Day is intercultural dialogue.

Throughout the day, visitors will be able to take a guided tour of the building and visit a number of different information stands. The tour is available in French, Dutch, German and English. Following a short introductory film about the Council, our guides will lead you through various parts of the building. The tour starts in the Press Centre and includes a look inside the meeting rooms in where Council meetings and European summits take place. After the tour, you will be offered some small souvenirs and you can pick up various brochures and leaflets about the Council’s activities from the Publications and documentation stand.

The majority of the stands will be located in the main courtyard known as the Atrium of the building. Here you will find the Slovenian Presidency stand, where there will be musical performances and other displays, as well as the stands of the European Central Bank (from Frankfurt), the EU Institute for Security Studies (from Paris) and Europol (from The Hague). More musical entertainment will be provided between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. by the Ghent Police Orchestra.

In addition, you can visit stands presenting many different Council activities, including aspects of the European Security and Defence Policy (EU Military Staff, the Civilian Crisis Management Unit and Civilian Planning and Conduct Capability), the Common Foreign and Security Policy (Non-proliferation of WMD) and Justice and Home Affairs (Prado).

As has become a tradition, the Council is organising its Open Day in cooperation with other European institutions. The Schuman area will therefore play host to a large number of different activities.



Estarei em Bruxelas no dia 7 de Junho em representação da Missão da União Europeia para a Reforma do Sector de Segurança da Guiné-Bissau. Quem quiser aparecer será bem vindo.
