Petition Summary  

The petitioner would welcome EU backing – after the end of the COVID-19 pandemic – for a global or at least a European public holiday. According to the petitioner, that would be a way of giving expression to something that countries have in common. He states that it might provide encouragement in future for more issues to be tackled jointly and for more events to be celebrated jointly. In his view, it would also be a further step towards a united Europe.
