Representatives from China, the 28 European Union Member States, and other countries gathered at the Delegation of the EU to China in Beijing to celebrate 2018 Europe Day recently.

Every year on May 9 the European Union celebrates Europe Day, also known as the "EU's Birthday."

At the event, EU Ambassador to China Hans Dietmar Schweisgut presented details of a year-long campaign which will give dozens of Chinese winners free round-trip tickets to Europe as part of the celebration of EU-China Tourism Year 2018.

As part of the TravelinEurope Weibo Photo Contest from May 2018-April 2019, the EU Delegation to China's official Weibo social media account will host a monthly competition.

The winners will receive two free round-trip tickets from China. Schweisgut encouraged netizens to submit photos which will be judged on their creativity. 

Also as part of the Europe Day celebrations, it was announced that monuments at 30 scenic spots in many places across China will be illuminated in "EU Blue" to create a "light bridge" including in Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Wuhan, Shenzhen, Kunming and Xi'an.

About Experience Europe

From May 2017 to April 2019, the EU Delegation will also run the ExperienceEurope campaign to broadcast 24 monthly topics in the form of social media posts, online competitions, podcasts, infographics and videos.

The campaign will feature a series of cultural events and public lectures on issues such as peace and prosperity, the environment, education, trade, and other topics.
