Europe Day 2010 events - Activities at St.George's Square Valletta (07/05/2010)
The main square of Valletta was transformed into a colourful fun-for-all area with numerous interactive and educational games and a giant map of Europe. Various animators engaged children and adults alike to participate in edutainment-oriented activities to mark the 60th anniversary of the declaration of Robert Schuman as well as the European Year for Combating Poverty and Social Exclusion.
The objective of activities related to the European Year was to raise awareness of the importance of personal, social and economic development, to disseminate good practices, to stimulate education and research, and to promote policy debate on related issues. MEP Edward SCICLUNA (S&D) toured the on-going activities together with European Commissioner John Dalli, Dr Michael Frendo, Speaker of the House of Representatives and Dr Julian Vassallo, Head of the European Parliament Office in Malta.
