SAFE – Safe Food Advocacy Europe was created in 2015 out of a concern for public health related to food issues. One of the most influential factors of the EU’s food legislation is lobbying, indeed the large majority of EU legislation is influenced by lobbyists. There are more than lobbyists in Brussels, 70% of them are working for businesses, only 10% work for NGOs. Thus, SAFE was created to ensure that consumer’s health and concerns remain at the core of the EU’s food legislation. SAFE is the only NGO in Brussels focusing only on the protection and representation of EU consumers in the food sector. SAFE monitors the EU’s food legislation process and cooperates with EU legislators and its actors to draft comprehensive food regulations. Mission Strengthening the voice of civil society in the EU debate over food regulation, thereby reinforcing participatory democracy in the EU. Increasing public awareness of food safety issues, noticeably by organising training programmes and seminars designed to allow citizens to make informed decisions on the food they eat by learning how to read food labelling (additives, food colourings, MSG). SAFE is giving training to children and teenager in school to reduce excessive sugar and food colorants consumption. Supporting independent research by identifying priority areas for research and raising funds.

The Political Festival of Europe is a yearly democracy festival that aims to gather citizens of Europe over the course of four days to discuss politics and embrace Europe’s rich history and cultural heritage. The Political Festival of Europe takes place in a town called Mariager – also known as the city of roses – an old, idyllic medieval town with crooked houses, cobblestoned streets and timber framed houses. With a modest population of just over 2,500 inhabitants, Mariager town will soon become the place where European democracy will come to life gathering hundreds of thousands of Europeans who want in on the future of Europe. Our mission is to be a place of: Courage – where we dare discuss the future of Europe “Peoplelization” – where we build communities as well as celebrate, showcase, and spread insights to local, regional, and national cultures Inspiration – where we establish debates, dialogues, hearings, and citizen involvement Accessibility – where we create an informal environment for citizens, politicians, and business leaders to meet Anchoring – where we anchor and raise the importance of our democracy for the future of Europe at a local level  In line with our missions, our vision is to “peoplelize” European politics and become a platform, where we strengthen democracy and unity in Europe. We aspire to become the political Olympic Games, where everyone has the possibility of participating in creating the future of Europe. The COVID-19 pandemic has given us all the more reason to create a platform, where we together can discuss European politics and its future. A platform, where people actively can get involved in developing European democracy. The inspiration behind Political Festival of Europe comes from the Nordic tradition of folkemøder –  a concept we want to take to the next level and raise from national settings to a pan-European setting in order to discuss matters that influence everyone in Europe. What is a Folkemøde?  The Danish tradition of Folkemøde [Folk – people; møde – meeting] is a public meeting that dates back to 1839. It is a political event that gathers people with different political views and positions in the interest of democracy. A Folkemøde takes form of informal discussions and speeches across opinions and hierarchy that strengthens active involvement of all participants – every one has a say, every one is heard. After the concept faded away in the 1940s, neighboring Sweden’s own form of folkemøde – Almedalsveckan introduced in 1968 – became the inspiration and groundwork for Denmark to revive the concept on the island of Bornholm in 2011 with their very own annual Folkemøde. It took on popularity fairly fast and has generated thousands of national visitors ever since. So far held at national levels, we aim to expand this concept to the whole of Europe. Here is why. What the purpose of a Folkemøde? The Danish model of Folkemøde is the cornerstone for democracy and pays tribute to the community. The foundation of a Folkemøde lies in dismantling barriers between citizens, politicians and decision-makers in order to bring politics closer to the people and to make society a better place for everybody.  The aim is to lead discussions about how to improve the future of the society and have citizens participate in shaping change. A “folkemøde” aims to: o   Inspire and challenge political views and visions o   Let people meet and listen to politicians they voted for o   Let people have a say and be heard o   Increase trust between citizens and decision-makers and hold politicians accountable o   “Peoplelize”, ;build a community where culture is showcased and celebrated o   Facilitate meaningful debates and anchor them in the political agenda  As cultural heritage is also celebrated in a Folkemøde, entertainment and good food are an integral part of such an event. Hence, at the Political Festival of Europe, you will be able to find arts and crafts, music and gastronomy, alongside the political debates, speeches, workshops, hearings etc.

Our Business Priorities We believe in the importance of having a clear set of priorities to guide us through a turbulent and ever-changing environment. Our aim is to achieve long term sustainable growth and deliver value to all our stakeholders. Focus on patients We focus on developing innovative medicines and diagnostic tests that help patients live longer, better lives. Two-thirds of all diseases are either still not treated adequately or not treated at all. This medical need is enormous and better diagnostics and medicines can make a huge difference to the lives of millions of patients and their families. Excellence in science We strive to address unmet medical needs through excellence in science. Breakthroughs in science and technology increasingly allow us to find out precisely what is malfunctioning in the body and develop drugs to counter the problem. We focus on oncology, immunology, ophthalmology, infectious diseases and neuroscience, however we remain flexible and follow the science as new insights become available. Personalised Healthcare We combine our strengths in pharmaceuticals and diagnostics to better fit treatments to patients. When genetic differences can be identified, the efficacy and safety of medicines can be improved enormously. To this end we have a companion diagnostic strategy for every molecule we develop. Access to healthcare We aim to bring our medicines and diagnostic tests to as many people in need as possible. Every healthcare system comes with different challenges and we customise solutions for individual markets. We work with many different local partners to reduce barriers to accessing healthcare and establish innovative, sustainable ways to bring effective and affordable healthcare to patients. Great workplace We are committed to constantly strengthening and maintaining an excellent workplace where every person feels valued and respected and can grow to his or her full potential. Our people make our business. They discover, develop and manufacture our products and ensure they reach the patients who need them. We believe that the key to our success lies in our ability to attract, retain and motivate a highly skilled and diverse workforce. Sustainable value We run our business in a way that is ethical and aims to create long-term value for all stakeholders. We want to create value through developing medical solutions and we aim for as many people to benefit from them as possible. We believe that our success lies in our ability to develop strategies where both industry and society benefit in a sustainable way.

ForeignPolicyCentre
This event examines how best to strengthen health systems in developing countries and the role the UK can play in supporting such initiatives. The Government’s 2021 Integrated Review identified Global Health as one of its 12 strategic framework areas that will see a new British approach. Under the heading ‘Global Health’ it states that ‘we will work to strengthen global health security, including through the Prime Minister’s five-point plan to bolster international pandemic preparedness. We will seek reform of the WHO, increasing our funding by 30% to £340 million over the next four years, and we will prioritise supporting health systems and access to new health technologies using our Official Development Assistance (ODA).’ The G7 Carbis Bay Health Declaration took this focus on systems forward but with a clear and unsurprising focus on preventing future pandemics. However, this shift has helped to spur the publication of the FCDO’s Health systems strengthening for global health security and universal health coverage. This event aims to address the findings of the FCDO’s policy paper that makes a UK commitment to health system strengthening. The event will look at the role local surgical capacity and expertise plays in strengthening the wider health system. It will explore practical examples from across the developing world of interventions that have helped build the capacity and resilience of healthcare systems. The event also seeks to look at the way in which the UK currently supports global health initiatives, such as GAVI, and the extent to which health systems are prioritised compared to disease-specific interventions within current aid spending, set in the context of the recent reductions in UK aid. It will assess the role played by international financial institutions and UN bodies in shaping, investing in and implementing health interventions around the world with a focus on how to strengthen the WHO and address the political and institutional challenges it faces.

Fostering inclusive growth to ‘level up’ the UK: Lessons from the Basque Country
27 Jan 2023
ForeignPolicyCentre
Fostering inclusive growth in order to ‘level up’ prosperity across the UK and reduce regional inequality has become an important policy agenda for the UK Government. There remain many questions, however, regarding how exactly this can be achieved. This Aston Centre for Europe and Foreign Policy Centre event seeks to extract lessons from the Basque Country, a region in northern Spain renowned for its inclusive economic transformation, and to share best practice. As a once heavily industrialised region that was ravaged by the economic crisis of the 1970s, the Basque Country developed a new economic model based on competitiveness and solidarity over subsequent decades, thanks to which it features among the leading regions in Europe in terms of GDP per capita and has among the lowest rates of poverty and social exclusion. Moreover, since the turn of the century, a variety of stakeholders – both public and private – have worked in an ever more dynamic fashion comprising top-down, bottom-up and horizontal processes to continually update and revisit the region’s strategy for inclusive economic development. What factors have been key to the success of the Basque Country’s territorial strategy? How exactly has the region’s dynamic approach to strategy design and implementation worked? What opportunities has it posed? And how – or to what extent – have any challenges and difficulties been overcome? Understanding these dimensions in a well-developed regional success story such as the Basque Country has the potential to offer important lessons for the range of regional and local stakeholders in the UK who are being invited to play an active role in designing and implementing a ‘levelling up’ strategy. This event will also offer the opportunity to consider what scope there is to deepen collaboration between prosperous regions in Europe such as the Basque Country and regions of the UK to address today’s economic challenges. Speakers: Dr Edurne Magro, Senior Researcher at Orkestra-Basque Institute of Competitiveness Bill Murray OBE, Adviser, Global Counsel; Former Head of Economics and Public Policy at the British Embassy in Spain Dr Igor Calzada, Senior Researcher, Wales Institute of Social and Economic Research, Data and Methods (WISERD), Cardiff University; Urban Transformations ESRC & Future of Cities Programme, University of Oxford; UN-Habitat – Digital Transformation in Urban Areas Henriette Lyttle-Breukelaar, Director of Economic Strategy, Greater Birmingham & Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership Chair: Dr Caroline Gray, Lecturer in Politics and International Relations, College of Business and Social Sciences at Aston University

We are in the grip of a flu wave and we're all seeing how respiratory viruses are impacting on our hospital emergency departments. Please continue to protect yourself and others by getting vaccinated, staying home when sick and wearing masks in crowded places #COVID19 #Flu TRANSCRIPT: Happy New Year everyone and I hope you had a lovely Christmas. So, where are we now? In recent days, we have all seen the extent to which respiratory viruses are impacting on our hospitals and, in particular, on Emergency Departments. We are in the grip of a wave of influenza and reported cases and hospitalisations continue to be at very high levels, as they have been over Christmas. Children are now back in school and we're back to work. It is very important for us to continue to be considerate of others, particularly those who are vulnerable and stay at home if we have flu-like symptoms. So, what else can we do to protect ourselves and others? I cannot stress this enough: vaccination saves lives. Take the opportunity to get your flu vaccine, and I would urge parents to consider the flu vaccine for your children. Also, keep up to date with your COVID winter booster. It is now available for those aged 18 to 49 years. If you do have COVID or flu, you may be suitable for antiviral treatment to help reduce the severity of the illness. If you are in a risk group, you should talk to your GP about potential treatment. At this time of high levels of respiratory illnesses, small actions help limit transmission. Wear your masks. Continue to clean your hands. Ventilate spaces where possible and practice good respiratory etiquette. Thank you.

This event is being hosted by the Council of Europe’s (CoE) Safety of Journalists Platform, the mechanism which reports on serious threats to the safety of journalists and media freedom in Europe, and the Foreign Policy Centre (FPC). The event is the UK launch for the Safety of Journalists Platform’s 2022 Annual Report. The report examines the key media freedom trends across Europe with 282 ‘alerts’ raised by NGOs to the Platform in 2021, a 41% increase on the previous year. It can be read here. Key findings: The 2022 Annual Report finds that six journalists were killed in Europe in 2021, three of whom (in Greece, the Netherlands and Turkey) were directly targeted, while the others lost their lives covering street protests and the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. The report addresses how 56 journalists and media actors were imprisoned in CoE Member States and a range of other important tools used in the intimidation against journalists, including the use of strategic lawsuits against public participation (SLAPPs), smear campaigns, reporting restrictions, online threats, and surveillance as well as impunity for past crimes against journalists. The event will examine issues in the wider media environment, from efforts to undermine the independence of public service media to the need to guarantee media pluralism, transparency of media ownership and control, and regulatory independence and fair funding. It will also look at steps being taken to protect journalists in Sweden, the Netherlands and the UK’s first National Action Plan for the Safety of Journalists that is highlighted in the Annual Report. The event will address the importance of improving the responses by Member States to alerts raised through the platform and of taking action on the non-execution of European Court of Human Rights’ rulings relating to media freedom. It will also discuss ways in which CoE Member States should be encouraged and incentivised to enact reforms to their domestic laws and practices to provide greater Protection of journalists, improve Prevention of harm against them and deliver effective Prosecution of those responsible for threats and attacks against journalists. Speakers: Fabian Hamilton MP, Shadow Minister for Peace and Disarmament Sarah Clarke, Head of Europe and Central Asia, Article 19 William Horsley, Media Freedom Representative of the Association of European Journalists Jessica Ní Mhainín, Policy & Campaigns Manager, Index on Censorship Chair: Susan Coughtrie, Project Director at the FPC (This is an archive event from May 18, 2022)

I'm very pleased to report that we appear to have passed the peak of the flu season which has been severe this year. Flu cases have decreased by 48%. And we've seen the number of hospitalisations fall from 321 to 114 in the past week. We are seeing a similar trend with COVID, with cases and hospitalisations reducing by almost 50%. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your efforts in reducing the spread of these respiratory viruses, which in turn is helping to ease the burden on our healthcare services. However, we cannot afford to become complacent as these viruses continue to circulate. It's still not too late to get your flu vaccine and parents can bring their children for the flu nasal spray vaccine to walk-in clinics around the country. This is a free, no-appointment service that runs until next Monday. Please also check if you are eligible for a COVID winter booster that will increase your protection over the coming weeks and months. Continue to practice all the small but very effective protective measures that will help keep us healthy as we head towards spring. Thank you all very much.

23 Jan 2023
EFSAchannel
On 15 Feb 2023 from 14:00 to 18:00, we are holding a workshop to disseminate the revised methodology for benchmark dose (BMD) analysis in EFSA’s updated Guidance document and to support its implementation in the R4EU BMD analysis platform. In 2009, EFSA’s Scientific Committee developed guidance on the use of the BMD approach in EFSA’s risk assessments as an alternative to the traditional No-Observed-Adverse-Effect-Level (NOAEL) approach. A 2017 update mainly concerned how to apply the BMD approach in practice and model averaging was introduced to account for model uncertainty. Following an EFSA workshop in March 2017 to discuss commonalities and divergences in the various approaches for BMD analysis worldwide, and the update of Chapter 5 on dose– response assessment of WHO/IPCS Environmental Health Criteria 240 (WHO, 2020), the Scientific Committee decided to update its guidance again to align it with internationally agreed concepts related to benchmark dose analysis, introducing Bayesian model averaging and a harmonised set of dose-response models for continuous and quantal responses, further harmonising EFSA’s approach with its partners.

Hospitalisations for flu have reached a record high while COVID and RSV are still circulating at high levels. Protect yourself by getting your winter vaccines. Children aged 2 - 17 can get the flu vaccine at walk-in vaccination centres around the country. #FluVaccine #forusall https://www2.hse.ie/ | https://www.gov.ie/en/organisation/department-of-health/?referrer=/ TRANSCRIPT: Hi everyone. Well, we continue to see a rise in flu cases with more than 3,000 cases and almost 700 hospitalisations reported in the last week. This is the highest ever reported in the last decade. It's still not too late to protect yourself and others by getting your flu vaccine. I am once again appealing to parents to consider this for your child, particularly as we've seen high numbers of children hospitalised as a result of flu this season and flu is still circulating at very high levels. Parents can now bring their children aged between 2 and 17 to walk-in vaccination clinics. You don't need an appointment and it's free of charge. This service will operate until the 23rd of January. And let's not forget about COVID which is still very much with us. We saw a significant increase in hospitalised cases over the Christmas period. Currently, we're beginning to see a decline, however, we are also closely monitoring the Omicron sub-variant XBB 1.5 which is reported to have increased transmissibility. It is circulating in the US and we have identified 26 cases to date here in Ireland. It's unclear what impact this variant will have and it is never too late to increase your protection. Your winter booster vaccine will boost your protection as it is adapted for the Omicron strain of the virus. RSV, although decreasing, is still circulating at very high levels. With children back to school and us all back at work it is very important we reinforce our behaviours. Stay home if we have new onset symptoms. However, it is important - if you are feeling very unwell - please seek medical attention. There have been a reduction in hospital attendances by older people. And it is concerning that older people may not be seeking the medical attention they need. Overall, we still have very high levels of circulating respiratory viruses. Let's continue to practice the simple measures that protect us. Wash your hands, wear your mask, ventilate spaces and practice good respiratory etiquette. Thank you.

1 Feb 2023
ForeignPolicyCentre
This event, co-organised by the Aston Centre for Europe (ACE) and the Foreign Policy Centre (FPC) will explore the practice and scope of Britain’s new ‘paradiplomacy’ towards the EU in the wake of Brexit. It seeks to develop a stronger understanding of an effective multi-level engagement with the EU and European partners post-Brexit, and offers opportunities to compare and learn from best practices. Across the world regions, cities and substate actors are part of the common currency of contemporary global politics. The foreign policy of any substate government or empowered authority is generally built upon their domestic competences. Most cities and regions exercise some degree of authority on issues such as environmental protection and sustainability, economic development, agriculture, education and transportation. This competence framework overlaps significantly with areas on which the EU continues to develop a policy agenda with significant global reach and suggests that conversations between these actors need to continue as the UK evolves into its role as a non-member partner country of the EU. Prior to Brexit, all of the UK’s constituent nations and regions were home to a representative office or mini-embassy in Brussels, often a hub for governmental and local commercial interests that worked to harness opportunities for engagement with a wide range of European partners. These multi-level partnerships have the advantage of being far more flexible than nation-to-nation interactions and can be more directly focused on delivering social and economic well-being at a more local scale. This type of ‘paradiplomacy’ differs from state diplomacy as it is not about pursuing a defined state interest in the international arena but rather it is more pragmatic, targeted and opportunistic – sometimes even experimental. How can all parts of the UK continue to derive benefits from engaging with European partners based in Brussels? How can the UK’s nations and regions continue to punch above their weight in EU circles and benefit from longer term partnership working across Europe? Is having a representation in the city a substantive opportunity to support domestic objectives, or are there other, more effective, routes to harnessing opportunities for partnership and engagement? Are there other models that the UK’s nations and regions can learn from? In the context of increasing political polarisation and questions being raised over the future of the union, would a more flexible and supportive approach from the British Government to international activities by substate actors strengthen or further weaken the ties of affinity that hold the UK together? Speakers: Stephen Gethins, Former MP and Professor of Practice in International Relations at University of St Andrews Dr Kirsty Hughes, Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, former Director of the Scottish Centre on European Relations Professor Richard Wyn Jones, Director of the Wales Governance Centre and Dean of Public Affairs at Cardiff University Theresa Griffin, Former MEP and Senior Associate at E3G Clare Moody, Former MEP and Co-CEO of Equally Ours Chair: Dr Carolyn Rowe, Co-Director of the Aston Centre for Europe

The Forum for Anti-Doping in Recreational Sport 2 or FAIR+, project was co-funded by Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union. The European Commission recognises the importance of anti-doping in recreational sport, though the lack of cooperation between institutions and stakeholders risks letting doping in recreational become a cause of public health concern. The FAIR+ project, a direct follow-up of the FAIR project, seeks to offer greater insight onto the prevalence of doping across recreational sport in Europe. The FAIR+ project has strived to do so through by reaching the following objectives: • To look into the existing prevalence of doping in recreational sport through a sample-based research, and investigate the societal and psychological motivations behind the use of doping at amateur level. • To produce the FAIR+ Educational Guidelines that will provide several recommendations on how to implement effective educational campaigns targeting recreational sport coaches, instructors, and trainers, and which will look at providing indicators to assess impact. This work will be based on qualitative research performed with major doping stakeholders. • To organise the annual Forum for Anti-Doping in Recreational Sport. The Forum has established itself as one of the most relevant European anti-doping events gathering experts, institutions and stakeholders to exchange on current policies and challenges. Since 2017, the Forum has contributed to raise policy-makers’ awareness of doping in recreational sport as a societal and public health concern, and it strives to foster further EU-level cooperation, networking and sharing of good practices and ideas.

ForeignPolicyCentre
This virtual event will discuss the findings of an upcoming Foreign Policy Centre (FPC) and the Peaceful Change Initiative (PCi) publication. The event and publication seek to re-examine the UK’s presence in fragile and conflict affected countries (FCACs) around the world at a time of continuing global geopolitical competition and added fragilities generated by the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact of climate change.The publication will address the questions of ‘why’ and ‘how’ the UK is engaged in FCACs in light of the UK Government’s recent Integrated Review, cuts to foreign aid and the emergence of new policy tools such as the UK’s independent trade policy. It will centre on the UK’s commitment to be a ‘Force for Good’ in the world and examine how this approach works alongside the Government’s other economic and strategic priorities. The event will build on this and highlight the importance of an integrated, conflict sensitive approach to FCACs, which recognises the importance of promoting sustainable peace pursuing long-term stability rather than a short-termist understanding of the UK’s national interests.The publication will be edited by Adam Hug (Director of the FPC) and Tim Molesworth (Senior Adviser, Conflict Sensitivity and Peace Technology at PCi). Essay contributors confirmed so far include: Rt Hon. Andrew Mitchell MP (former International Development Secretary); Jonathan Cohen (Executive Director of Conciliation Resources); Dr Naho Mirumachi (Reader in Environmental Politics at Kings College London); Phil Bloomer (Executive Director at Business and Human Rights Resource Centre); Helen Kezie-Nwoha (Executive Director, Women’s International Peace Centre (WIPC)); Phil Vernon (Consultant and former Director of Programmes at International Alert); Richard Reeve (Coordinator of the Rethinking Security network); and Fred Carver (Consultant).

As cases of respiratory viruses continue to decline, I would like to thank you for playing your part in getting us safely through this season. Remember, vaccines save lives. You can get your COVID booster this weekend at walk-in clinics. See https://hse.ie/walkins #forusall TRANSCRIPT: Hi everyone. January is finally behind us and so too is the peak of this current wave of respiratory viruses. The numbers continue to move in the right direction, with significant reductions in COVID, flu and RSV cases. In turn, the number of hospitalisations continue to fall and they will fall further in the coming week. That's a very welcome trend, particularly as we head towards spring and begin to spend more time outdoors. All of you have played a significant role in getting us safely through this season. I would particularly like to thank those of you who came forward for your flu vaccine, and everyone who received their COVID boosters. Your efforts made a big difference as vaccines save lives. We know that immunity wanes over time, so please take the opportunity to top up your protection. Check your vaccine status and get your next booster if you are eligible. You can do so easily this bank holiday weekend as COVID boosters are available at walk-in clinics in every county. As always, keep doing the little things to reduce the spread of the viruses and enjoy Saint Brigid's Bank Holiday weekend. Once again, thank you for playing your part.

Mental health in a digital world – how to ensure good mental health outcomes for vulnerable groups
12 Jan 2023
Mental Health Europe
Webinar | Mental Health in All Policies: Mental health in a digital world – how to ensure good mental health outcomes for vulnerable groups Digitalisation is changing the way we live, the way we work, as well as the way we receive mental health care. The exponential incorporation of digital technologies in our daily lives is likely to have significant impact (both positive and negative) on mental health. It is crucial to be aware of the effects of a transforming and fast-evolving society on mental health, especially of the most vulnerable population groups (e.g., children and adolescents, older people, socio-economic disadvantaged groups, etc.). The objective of this webinar was to share knowledge and experience related to concrete actions carried out to maximise the opportunities and reduce the risks arising from digital technologies, in relation to mental health, with a focus on vulnerable groups. After an introduction highlighting win-win situations of a “mental health in all policies approach” – i.e., mutual benefits arising from mental health promotion in non-health policy areas – the webinar took a deep dive into the topic of digitalization and mental health, focusing on three areas: Living in a digital world – “How to ensure safety of online environments for children? – examples from practice and policy”. Working in a digital world – “Work-related psychosocial risks in the digital era and good prevention practice” Digital mental health care – “Digital mental health services for vulnerable groups – experiences” Watch this webinar recording! #EUHPP #MentalHealth #MentalHealthInAllPolicies #MHPSS
