Since then, we have taken action to live up to the call. 鈫

Multilingualism is one of the founding principles that make Europe unique.

With 24 official languages, the EU is a cultural kaleidoscope!

On the European Day of Languages, let's come together to celebrate this richness!

Speaking languages is the key to:
- opening up new worlds
- broadening your horizons
- forging deeper connections

This post is in English, but we're fluent in all #EU languages!

In #Brussels, history and innovation meet at the Bourse!

A symbol of the 19th century, the former stock exchange was carefully restored with 鈧18 million of EU funding to become a lively public space.

The main hall is now an important link in the city centre.

It offers spaces for exhibitions and attractions such as Belgian Beer World and the Bruxella 1238 archaeological site.

As per our #EU sustainability targets, its restoration achieved a remarkable 30% cut in energy consumption.

Im spanischen Parlament werden neu Baskisch, Galizisch und Katalanisch gesprochen. Der Aufruhr ist gross, die Aufw盲nde seien enorm, auch wenn man sich fragen kann, inwieweit #Galizisch und #Katalanisch 眉berhaupt 眉bersetzt werden m眉ssen.
Widerstand gibt es auch in der Frage der Anerkennung als #Amtssprachen der #EU. Hier d眉rfte der Grund wohl vergleichsweise trivial sein: Allzuviele Dolmetscher von #Baskisch in #Lettisch d眉rften wohl nicht greifbar sein?

Our strength lies in our diversity.

We've been championing the inclusion of sign language through programs like Lifelong Learning and Erasmus+.

On this International Day of Sign Languages, our goal is to promote recognition by actively supporting its widespread use.

A big thank you to the European Union of the Deaf for their support in making this video! Happy #IDSL to all.

Well, the few US news I watched that mentioned Apple changing its iPhone chargers to USB-C didn't mention that it was enforced by the EU. Why so?

Give credit where credit is due. And follow their example: do what's good for the people and the environment.

Report says homelessness is worsening across #EU and #UK, with only #Denmark and #Finland making progress

Almost 1m people across #Europe are homeless on any given night | Homelessness | The Guardian

Not sure if I'm missing the point, but Germany's mobile phone infrastructure is way behind even Romania's, if I remember correctly, one of the poorest countries in the #EU. So, yes, "third-world country", Germany.


EU policies have a real impact.

Here are some examples we'd like to share with you:

鉃 #EUChipsAct

The EU-funded Infineon chips fab in Germany will create over 1,000 new skilled #jobs.

鉃 Green Deal Industrial Plan

France's newly opened, first gigafactory in Billy-Berclau received 鈧1.3 bn in #EU funding.

These four-legged heroes work diligently to ensure our safety.

With their sharp senses and unwavering dedication, they not only intercept unlawful items at #EU borders but also provide aid during conflicts, natural disasters, and anti-terrorism efforts.

These dedicated heroes deserve our recognition every day.

#Poland to vote on #migration referendum in upcoming election

Poles will be asked their if they back selling off state firms, including to foreign entities; whether to raise the country's retirement age; and whether they want to maintain a border fence with Russia's close ally #Belarus.

Citizens will also be asked if they want to accept asylum-seekers and #migrants under an #EU deal.

The text of the PiS drafted referendum refers to migrants as "thousands of illegal immigrants" from Africa and the Middle East under the EU agreement, which the referendum denounces as having been "imposed by European bureaucracy."

The referendum comes at a time of border tensions with Belarus. The opposition says the ruling Law and Justice party is misusing public funds to demonize migrants.

馃攱 From electric mobility to energy storage, we must ensure batteries are fit for our green future.

As of today, the #EU Batteries Regulation will make them safer, circular and sustainable throughout their lifecycle, including:

- A restriction on harmful substances
- Mandatory minimum levels of recycled content from 2025
- Removable and replaceable portable batteries in consumer electronics by 2027
- Recovery targets for raw materials, such as nickel and lithium
