What is Europe Day?
EU Day or Europe Day marks the birth of the European Union in 1950, starting The European Coal and Steel Community, then followed by consolidation and integration. Currently, the EU has 27 member countries with 24 official languages and a total population of 446 million people.EU Day 2021 within ProEUHE Project is hosted as a virtual event with the purpose of providing information and giving our students more opportunities to learn from participating in hands-on activities such as several multimedia mobile games. Accordingly, students can explore and better understand the culture and education of the European Union (EU) countries.Through this multi-sensory learning event, students will enrich useful and general knowledge of the culture and higher education of the EU. This is also an opportunity to promote academic exchange programs between Vietnam and European countries. Therefore, as expected outcomes, it proves to be an asset to promoting the development of Vietnamese education in the world.EU Day 2021 – (May 9, 2021)The EU Day 2021 event is an activity of the ProEUHE Project which was streamed live on the fanpage “Promoting EU Higher Education – Erasmus + Jean Monnet Project” and the YouTube channel “CIE PTIT” and attracted more than 1000 views.
