On the European and World Day against the Death Penalty, the European Union and the Council of Europe reaffirm their firm opposition to capital punishment at all times and in all circumstances.

On the 19th of August, we celebrate those who dedicate their time, effort and skills to others. Humanitarian workers may not be Olympic athletes, but on their working marathons, they often put their lives at stake to protect others. They thrive not to achieve the best time, but the most effective result. They carry the torch of solidarity and altruism. The EU honours all humanitarian workers saving lives and helping the most vulnerable in times of crisis worldwide. Their courage, will and determination is the victory of us all.
