On #InternationalNursesDay, we pay tribute to all the nurses who are at the frontline of the pandemic.

#COVID19 obliged us to reduce social interaction & increased insecurities. Some of us lost loved ones or had major upsets to our lives. More than ever, it is important to come together, hold conversations and support each other. #MentalHealthMatters #EuropeanMentalHealthWeek https://t.co/YcuEv1kDKo

Excellent exchange with @EU_CoR on the #UnionOfEquality programme. Fully agree that ours is not a series of measures but a mind-shift for substantive equality. Local & regional authorities are leading the way in the field to ensure equality & I look forward to future exchanges https://t.co/FKwa0saFEL
