Highlight

Invasive alien species (IAS) cost the EU an estimated EUR 12 billion per year, prompting the European Commission to push for an EU-wide approach to tackle the issue. The phenomenon, which occurs when plants and animals are deliberately or unintentionally introduced by human action to a new environment where they establish, reproduce and proliferate, is causing serious problems for biodiversity. The dedicated legal instrument aims to tackle the problem through a new harmonised system and a shift from “cure” to “prevention”.

Do we really know the Roma? International Roma Day raises the question

Between ten and twelve million Roma live in the European Union today, the majority suffering extreme levels of social deprivation leading to a public perception usually based on ignorance, prejudice and stereotyping. This film shows that another reality is emerging, that Roma are integrating into society at all levels, setting an example to their community and thereby helping to change negative preconceived opinions.
