Europe Month is a celebration to honor Europe Day on 9th of May. On this day, every year, we celebrate peace and unity in Europe. This day also marks the launching of Europe Month in Saudi Arabia, a celebration of Europe and our cooperation with the Kingdom. This year, Europe month will run from 9 May to 9 June.
During a series of events taking place throughout this month, you will be able to enjoy European culture as well as learn more about the European Union, and the opportunities it provides in many areas like education and business. These events are organised by the EU delegation and EU Member States' Embassies in Riyadh.
Europe Month is about sharing cultural experiences and encouraging further exchanges between Europe and the Kingdom. The aim is to improve mutual understanding and strengthen further our bilateral ties.
