Day of Europe in Sumy 2010


Although traditionally a holiday celebrated in Ukraine on the third Saturday of May, students in Sumy prepared and celebrated it much longer in Sumy. In conjunction with its network of Euro Clubs, NGO Center for European Initiatives planned and implemented the preparations for the third consecutive year, beginning the celebration two months before Day of Europe. During this time they held various competitions on the knowledge, history, cultural life, and standards of human rights in the European Union.
