Every year, the European Commission's Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations runs high impact communication campaigns to raise awareness and enhance understanding and support of humanitarian aid values among the EU citizens. The campaigns also inform citizens about the EU’s role in civil protection.

The campaigns highlight the cooperation between the European Commission and its humanitarian and civil protection partners in delivering relief assistance to people affected by crises around the world.

Current campaigns

Climate Connect

Every year, millions of people have to flee the consequences of climate change.
The EU supports those most affected by climate change and the forced displacement it entails. But to meet global challenges of this size, we must work together.

Emergency Preparedness

These are the stories of the incredibly committed civil protection officers who worked to help people in other European countries, and of their counterparts at the ERCC, who coordinated these solidarity efforts from Brussels.
