Kosovo is making progress. It took a lot of reforms, and many more need to come. And we, as European Union, also need to do more on our side. @SCHIEDER live in #EPlenary 🔴europarl.europa.eu/plenary/e…

A Socialist government means a better future for #Chile. We are glad to welcome @UrrejolaRREE to our Group meeting. Collaboration in the actual context is more important than ever before. And we stand ready to work together!✊

Are we still serious about defending our planet and building a sustainable 🇪🇺 for all? By labelling gas and nuclear as ‘green’, we answer this question with a clear ‘no’. This deal favours just a few, while we need solutions that work for all Europeans More from @paultang 👇

The Commission wants to include gas and nuclear as sustainable energy sources, labelling things ‘green’ when they are clearly not. This decision sends the wrong message to EU citizens and investors. We must be clear and serious. We must reject this delegated act. @simonabonafe

Gas and nuclear are not green energy sources. Taxonomy should fulfil its ambition to be the global gold standard for sustainable finance and pave the way to the 🇪🇺’s alignment with the Paris Agreement. Today we will ask the Commission to do so 🔴📺 europarl.europa.eu/plenary/e…

The pandemic has exhausted us physically and mentally. Constant🔛pressure on workers brings anxiety, depression, burn out. We call on the Commission to protect the mental health of employees: ✔️right to disconnect ✔️tele-work ✔️management of psychosocial risks & AI at work

It's question time! Today we'll be asking Commissioner @VSinkevicius how the 🇪🇺can increase its ambitions ahead of COP15. Because increasing ambitions means increasing our chances at a better, sustainable, fair future. Follow live 👉 europarl.europa.eu/plenary/e…

If we want to be ambitious, we need a binding agreement. With targets, specific aims, mechanisms to implement and review. Like the Paris Agreement. The 🇪🇺 needs an ambitious plan for climate. We must invest where it’s needed & remove investment where it’s harmful. 🗨️@cesarluena

The 'homework' is not just before the COP 15. We need to work constantly. Deforestation is a real problem. And monitoring it is an issue as well. We need rules not only for deforestation, but also for nature restoration. Wil the Commission learn from the past? 🗨️@delarabur

We gathered with other EP groups to show our solidarity with 🇺🇸 women. The decision by US Supreme Court to struck down the constitutional right to abortion, is the latest symptom of a war against women, especially the poorest. Abortion is a human right – we won’t remain silent.

✊We did it! We have been asking for a new social summit, to tackle the issues Europe is facing. And today, in #EPlenary, our demands bear fruit. The 🇨🇿Presidency of the 🇪🇺Council has just announced this will become a reality. Now back to work. For the people!

Having a EU action plan for the social economy is a very important proposal, says @fritzon_h Work in the social economy must ensure decent working conditions, collective bargaining and increased female participation.

We need to act bold, says @NicolasSchmitEU A EU-wide unity to tackle this crisis is needed more than ever. Working on a more social Europe is the only way forward and we're ready to help households and support companies.

This situation is not just about energy poverty, says @gabischoff People are afraid that the money in their pockets will be worth less and less. We need a social summit to tackle this crisis and we need it now.
