How to say OPEN UP in 50 languages with Europe in a Day!

“Open Up” was chosen as the slogan for the 65th Eurovision Song Contest, which will be hosted in the Dutch city of Rotterdam in May 2020.

Speaking of the slogan, the Executive Producer Event of the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 said “The slogan ‘Open Up’ is intentionally incomplete: Open up to each other. Open up to music. Open up to Rotterdam. Open up to… whatever you choose! Feel the freedom to complete the slogan in your own way. That way we get to know each other better,”

When the contest was cancelled in March 2020, the slogan was carried over to 2021, so that all Europe still got the chance to open up to one another. And what better way to get to know each other better than saying it the 50 languages of Europe in a Day!

    1. Hello there!

      Hebrew isn’t missing, it’s not one of the 50 languages Europe in a Day speaks. I’m trying hard to learn enough of it so that maybe I can include it in future.

      Thanks for your interest in Europe in a Day!
