On this #HumanRightsDay, we must work to #RecoverBetter from this pandemic, and ensure that #HumanRights remains central to that recovery. This includes safeguarding #GenderEquality, #ClimateAction, and #AntiCorruption efforts across the globe.

Kudos from Times Square in New York for the success of our first EU SURE social bond. The €17 billion raised last week has gone to 🇮🇹 Italy, 🇪🇸 Spain and 🇵🇱 Poland to help them keep people in jobs. This is European solidarity in action.

These first pay-outs under the SURE instrument will help support national short-time work schemes and similar measures in response to the pandemic, in particular for the self-employed.
