Week 2 in a 6 week series of workshops to examine the history of France within the EU, beginning with the earliest days of the EU with Jean Monnet, the inspiration behind the ‘Schuman Plan’ and Robert Schuman one of the founding fathers of EU unity who published the internationally known ‘Schuman Plan’ on 9 May 1950, celebrated today as the birthdate of the European Union and will highlight the main treaties and events to date.
In addition we will look at French language, food and culture to bring local Donegal people a little closer to their EU neighbours in France. The workshops will be facilitated by EDIC manager in partnership with Francophile and language teacher Dolores Frances. The second work shop will run for 2 hours from 10.30am on Tuesday 6 October.
