We believe that a safe, sustainable, peaceful and prosperous Arctic is important not just for the Arctic itself, but also for the EU and actually for the whole world.

Today, together with the High Representative @JosepBorrellF, we unveil an updated Arctic policy.

We will support efforts to reduce black carbon emissions in the Arctic by 33% by 2025 acting against major sources of pollution affecting the Arctic regions.

We are a global leader in the fight against climate change, and we are ready to play our full part.

Is our commitment to contribute to a peaceful and constructive dialogue and cooperation in a changing geopolitical landscape.

The Arctic must be safe and stable. We will intensify regional cooperation and developing strategic foresight on emerging security challenges.

Total support to science, research, and innovation, contributing to the design of a European Polar Research Area for green, digital, health and innovative solutions, engaging indigenous knowledge.

Our commitment to Arctic research will continue through Horizon Europe.

Today, we are presenting our first-ever EU Strategy on combating antisemitism and fostering Jewish life.

As part of the EU’s work tackling racism and with antisemitism worryingly on the rise, we are determined to put an end to it.

Every second European considers antisemitism a problem.

We must create an inclusive society based on equality and respect, free from antisemitism and any form of discrimination.

Antisemitism is incompatible with the EU’s core values.

This new Strategy is articulated around three pillars:

▪️ Preventing and combating all forms of antisemitism.

▪️ Protecting and fostering Jewish life in the EU.

▪️ Education, research and Holocaust remembrance.

Promised during #SOTEU 2020.
Delivered in 2021.

We are launching the European Health Emergency preparedness and Response Authority (HERA).

It is another building block of a stronger #HealthUnion and a major step forward for our crisis preparedness → europa.eu/!FUVnRV
🌍 Outbreaks of infectious diseases are on the rise.

With HERA, we will be better prepared to anticipate potential health crises & address possible gaps in medical countermeasures.

It will work closely with other EU & national agencies, researchers & industry. #HealthUnion
What happens when an emergency hits?

HERA will ensure critical equipment, medicines, vaccines and other medical countermeasures – such as gloves and masks – are available, when and as necessary.

It can activate emergency measures for research, manufacturing and funding.
