Freedom Dialogue Europe
The fight against disinformation is a long-term challenge for European democracies, undermining citizens' trust in democracy and its institutions, and contributing to the polarization of public opinion and disruption of democratic processes. Addressing disinformation has become critically important in the context of Russia's war in Ukraine, with Russia conducting an unprecedented disinformation campaign since 2022. Ukraine is targeted by propaganda and disinformation as part of the Kremlin's hybrid warfare tactics. Cyprus is as a prime example of a European country heavily influenced by Moscow, with Russian officials and businessmen having enjoyed considerable economic and political sway on the island over the years. Their efforts aimed to win over allies within the country and maintain Kremlin's control over emigrants, contributing to a pro-Russian sentiment. Many Cypriot politicians and influential individuals acted in Russia's interests, harming their own country and the EU. Although Cyprus officially adheres to EU sanctions against Russia, Cyprus shows little interest in targeting Russian assets or tackling money laundering, instead they amplify travel arrangements through increased flights to Yerevan. Over 51% of the Cypriot population doubts Russia's primary responsibility for the war in Ukraine, reflecting a high acceptance of Russian propaganda, underscoring the extent of Russia's influence in Cyprus. Given that Russian interference is a threat to democracy, it is urgent to enhance the EU's security framework by reforming rules on transparency, integrity, accountability, and combating corruption. Understanding how important these issues are, we want to set up a panel talk and bring together experts to explore and discuss vital concerns such as press freedom and the battle against disinformation.

Decarbonising the building stock is a key challenge on the way to climate neutrality. As stipulated in the proposed Energy Performance of Buildings Directive recast, the EU’s building stock should be zero-emission by 2050. In this transition, heating and cooling play a key role, since the vast majority of operational emissions from buildings stem from the need for space and water heating and cooling. The session demonstrates the various elements needed to successfully implement the Zero-Emission Building concept across the various climate zones of Europe, bringing together the perspectives of the EU institutions with the Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) designers, manufacturers and installers and building professionals representing the whole value chain of efficient and renewable HVAC technologies from design to operation and maintenance. ➔ More about the session from the #EUSEW2022 event platform: https://european-sustainable-energy-week.b2match.io/ About EUSEW: https://sustainable-energy-week.ec.europa.eu/index_en Policy Conference programme: https://sustainable-energy-week.ec.europa.eu/policy-conference_en Join the EUSEW community: https://eusew.eu/0c7 ______________________________________ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/euenergyweek/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/euenergyweek Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/groups/4197341/ ______________________________________ The European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) is the biggest annual event dedicated to renewables and efficient energy use in Europe.

digital The Cyprus broadband voucher scheme
The Cyprus broadband voucher scheme
20 Apr 2021
DigitalEU
The “Cyprus broadband voucher scheme” aims to reduce the costs of providing high speed broadband to end users. Cyprus made use of the European Commission De Minimis regulation and subsidised new connections, or upgrades to speeds of at least 100 Mbps. Each voucher covered 30% of the annual costs per connection. During the period that the programme was running 4 000 households made new subscriptions and around ¾ of those made use of the voucher scheme, therefore the project is considered very successful.

Many European regions are experiencing climate change effects. On Cyprus, rainfall patterns are evolving. Rains are becoming less frequent and more intense. More water evaporates before reaching underground aquifers. Forests are pumping some underground water out. This puts dry regions at increased risk of drought. In wet areas of Central Europe, there's growing danger of flash floods. Researchers are working across the EU to monitor the changes. euronews knowledge brings you a fresh mix of the world's most interesting know-hows, directly from space and sci-tech experts.

European Committee o...
Franco Iacop, member of the European Committee of the Regions and President of the Regional Council of Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy, share the experience of his region with the Nicosia initiative. On 13-15 June 2017, Friuli Region met with representatives from Libyan Municipalities to train them in the field of fishing cooperatives. During study theses visits Libyan experts had on-site visits to operational facilities and participate in workshops and debates. Since 2015, the European Committee of the Regions has developed a close political and, increasingly, a very practical relationship with Libyan cities. The relationship has the twin aims of helping to improve public services in Libya and of helping Libyan cities to enter the international community. The cooperation is a response to the political turmoil and insecurity that Libya has experienced since 2011, which has eroded municipal services in Libya, kept Libyan cities isolated internationally, and transformed the country into a major transit route for irregular migrants. At the request of Libyan cities, the Committee of the Regions has been mobilising partnerships for Libya's local authorities since January 2016. The CoR is matching the requests of Libyan cities with offers of expertise from EU cities and regions. The purpose is to improve the lives of ordinary Libyans, by helping municipalities provide better services in areas ranging from primary health care to waste management. The initiative is also a contribution – through city diplomacy – to the stabilisation of Libya at a point when political turmoil and insecurity have led to the freezing of cooperation with Libyans. This is a bottom-up process – known among participants as the 'Nicosia Initiative' – that responds to the needs of one of the EU's closest and most fragile neighbours. The CoR's involvement reflects the assembly's belief that city diplomacy and peer-to-peer diplomacy need to be activated to address major, long-term international challenges. It is also in keeping with the EU's global strategy and a conviction that the EU should think globally and act locally. Gabrovo has an active policy on energy efficiency, contributing to the transformation of the city to a modern European municipality, investing in smart, sustainable, inclusive, regionally balanced economic growth. Local authorities try to have an optimal use of the possibilities for EU funding.

The ESM financial assistance programme for Cyprus ended on 31 March 2016. The euro area countries agreed to a package of financial assistance of up to €10 billion for Cyprus in 2013. Thanks to a better-than-expected economic recovery, private investors’ participation in bank recapitalisation and a return to market financing, however, the full amount was not needed. The ESM disbursed €6.3 billion, and the IMF a further €1 billion. In order to receive the loans, Cyprus implemented a number of key reforms, including: - Restoring the soundness of the Cypriot banking sector by thoroughly restructuring and downsizing financial institutions - Cutting the excessive government deficit, in particular by reducing current primary expenditure and increasing the efficiency of public spending - Implementing structural reforms to support competitiveness and sustainable and balanced growth Cyprus has managed to restore economic growth and repair public finances much faster than expected. The country’s financial sector – which was the main source of the crisis – was restructured, recapitalised and downsized, and the legal and supervisory framework was modernised. The country regained the trust of investors and returned to the bond market, where it continues to finance its debt at sustainable rates. The European Stability Mechanism (ESM) is the permanent crisis resolution mechanism for the countries of the euro area. Like its predecessor -- the temporary European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF) -- the ESM provides financial assistance to euro area Member States experiencing or threatened by financing difficulties.

The focus of the workshop was the issue of ensuring justice and protection for separated and unaccompanied, asylum-seeking children. The group involved children who have themselves lived through this experience, but also children active in national participation structures which have debated issues of integration and access to services.
