To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Lisbon Treaty, European Parliament President David Sassoli is hosting a ceremony in the House of European History on 1 December.
At noon on Sunday, President Sassoli will be joined by European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, European Council President Charles Michel and European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde to mark the 10th anniversary of the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty. On the same day, a new chapter for Europe begins, as on 1 December the European Commission and its President Ursula von der Leyen will start their mandate, as will the new President of the European Council, Charles Michel.
