The "European Awareness Days” (EADs) are an original communication format on the EU put into place across Europe through the projects, MoreEU, carried out in the framework of the Jean Monnet programme, and AwarEU, carried out in the framework of Erasmus+.

The EADs are composed of a music recital (“Europe: What a Passion! The Tale of a Stormy Love Affair”)  leading up to a debate with the audience, especially the young people attending, before making way for debates meant to provide data and scientific tools in order to rationally determine the urgent need to finalise the integration process and create a multi-level supranational democracy. 

“Europe: What a Passion!” is a lively and innovative recital which tells the story of European integration after the Second World War. It engages spectators in the largely untold legend which is nevertheless an important part of their own history, and whose future depends on our conscious and unconscious decisions. A storyteller connects via voice-over twelve well-known European songs, representing twelve milestones in a long and turbulent love affair. The songs and texts are adapted to the transnational and multilingsuistic approach of the artistic project: different versions of the spectacle are targeted at different European audiences. In all versions, the twelve steps are illustrated by videos retracing the principal steps of the European construction through original text and graphics.
