On 9 December, the European Union remembers the victims of genocides, across the world, and throughout history.
We must never forget the atrocities of the past. We owe it to the victims of these crimes against humanity. We also owe it to ourselves: we can only build a better future if we acknowledge the dark days of the past. It is a moral obligation towards humanity.
Climate change is a global threat with serious implications for peace and security. Working together through multilateralism and international cooperation is the only way to address the ever growing complex intricacies between climate change and conflict. The High Representative of the European Union, Josep Borrell, is committed to ensuring that the European Union plays a leading role in the global fight against climate change.
