“Europe will not be made all at once, or according to a single plan. It will be built through concrete achievements which first create a de facto solidarity.” Extract from Robert Schuman’s declaration on 9 May 1950.

It's wonderful to see how Europe Day is celebrated in Kosovo, the significance of the Schuman Declaration and the transformative impact of EU programs like Erasmus+ have made on individuals and communities. The daily testimonials from Erasmus alumni truly illustrate the profound personal growth and positive influence these mobility opportunities have had on Kosovar youth.

The growing number of student and staff mobility from Kosovo to EU and vice versa

demonstrate not just the scale but also the tangible benefits of these activities, both in terms of outgoing and incoming participants, as well as the projects and scholarships secured. It's remarkable to see Kosovo's increasing success in these programs, particularly in the latest calls, which reflects a strong commitment to international cooperation and education.

Indeed, mobility programs like Erasmus+ serve as bridges that connect cultures, foster

understanding, and promote shared values across borders. They not only enhance individual skills and knowledge but also contribute to building a more interconnected and harmonious Europe. The sentiment that "we live in Europe and Europe lives in all of us" encapsulates the essence of unity in diversity and the collective aspiration for a brighter future.

On this Europe Day, let's continue to celebrate the achievements of European integration and reaffirm our commitment to promoting peace, unity, and cooperation across the continent.
