On August 1

On this day in ...
... 2001 (10 years ago today), the European Environment Agency (logo at left) gained a group of new member states: Bulgaria, Cyprus, Latvia, Malta, Slovenia and Slovakia all joined on this day. The joinder preceded the entry of various of these countries into other regional intergovernmental organizations; specifically, NATO and the European Union.
