VOTE FOR CLIMATE
This is a crucial moment for the #EUClimateLaw negotiations. A moment in which, to be successful, we need to stay ambitious. But some negotiators want to rush a deal, cutting some of its fundamental aspects at the costs of our climate. Help us achieve the best deal - use our tool to send a tweet to your minister.
The new face of an old enemy: What do we know about gender-based cyber violence and how can we combat it?
Gender-based violence online is not a new phenomenon, but a continuum of violence that women and girls face offline. The root causes of all forms of gender-based violence are the same. Gender as a dimension of cyber violence should influence how we perceive it and how we take action against it, also in EU laws and policies.
PROTECT AND RESTORE THE WORLD’S FORESTS
Forests are indispensable. They cover 30 percent of the earth’s land area and host 80 percent of the world’s land-based species. Forests provide us with fresh water and oxygen, and are essential for regulating the global climate. We want a world with forests, where we can all breathe and enjoy nature as it should be - unspoiled.
BUT DEFORESTATION IS STILL HAPPENING
Forests are being devastated at an alarming rate. Every year, we lose an area of forest about the size of Greece. The main reason is the expansion of agriculture. The EU is responsible for around 10 percent of global deforestation through its consumption of products like soya, beef, palm oil and cocoa.

FOR A WELCOMING EUROPE
A growing number of municipalities and regions in Europe are prepared to welcome asylum seekers; and many citizens want to help and show solidarity. We want to make sure that people who want to welcome other people with open arms are actually able to do so, and without being harassed or intimidated.
Our vision of the Conference on the Future of Europe
After months of negotiations, an agreement was eventually found between the European Parliament, the European Commission and the Council to start the Conference on the Future of Europe. We welcome this long-waited outcome and are now putting all our efforts in making the Conference a successful democratic process that delivers change and drives Europe closer to its citizens.
