We've opened formal proceedings against Meta regarding the protection of minors on Facebook and Instagram.

The systems of both platforms, including their algorithms, may stimulate behavioural addictions in children, as well as create so-called 'rabbit-hole effects’.

"I strongly condemn the vile attack on Prime Minister Robert Fico.

Such acts of violence have no place in our society and undermine democracy, our most precious common good.

My thoughts are with PM Fico and his family."

— President von der Leyen, 15 May 2024

In solidarity we prepare, and united we stand.

We are boosting our preparedness against wildfires through the fleet and a strategic pre-positioning of firefighters. This means:

→ 24 aeroplanes and 4 helicopters hosted by ten EU countries;
→ 550+ firefighters from twelve countries on standby.

We have also allocated €600 million that will facilitate the acquisition of 12 new firefighting planes and several helicopters in the future.

Die EU ist im Fediverse mit eigenen Servern präsent und damit fast allen Regierungen der Welt voraus. Am Samstag sollen die Server aber abgeschaltet werden, weil keine EU-Institution den Betrieb übernehmen will. Was danach mit den Accounts geschehen soll, ist unklar.

is just around the corner 🇪🇺 !

Tomorrow, we will celebrate the anniversary of the Schuman Declaration –, a milestone in our history that set the foundation for the European Union as we know it today.

👴🏻 : “Europe will not be made all at once, or according to a single plan. It will be built through concrete achievements which first create a de facto solidarity.”

Let’s continue to work to build a brighter, more united future for all of us.

200 candles today for our Ode to Joy!

The European Union’s anthem turns 2⃣0⃣0⃣ today and it is time to celebrate Ludwig van Beethoven’s masterpiece!

Composed in 1824, the excerpt from the prelude to Beethoven's Ninth Symphony was adopted as the anthem of the EU in 1985 and is one of the most known symbols of our unity. It speaks volumes through its melody, embodying the shared European ideals of freedom, peace, and solidarity.

One anthem, a whole Union. Happy birthday, Ode to joy!

@EU_Commission@social.network.europa.eu avatar

Vielen Dank für den Kommentar, @Doris! Beethoven ist wahrhaftig eine Inspiration für uns alle!

Hello @VoxClamans! Actually, working towards inclusivity in the workplace does fall within our competence. Did you know that your right to be protected from discrimination at work is enshrined in the treaties that establish the functioning of the EU?
