SIGN: ONE Chance to protect EU aid
We’re done playing nice. It’s time for the President of the European Council to know how serious ONE supporters are when it comes to fighting for a better world.
Extreme poverty needs the full attention of our leaders - without it, issues including education, climate change and healthcare will continue to get ignored.
This is our one chance to build a better and brighter world. We’ll be delivering the letter with your name included to the President of the European Council at a key decision-making meeting. Together, ONE supporters will help change history.
Dear President Michel,
We are supporters of The ONE Campaign, writing from all parts of the European Union. We know right now you are taking forward negotiations between EU governments on the next long-term budget. This budget will determine whether the EU will rise to the greatest challenges of our generation.
There is overwhelming public support for EU investment in development. 70% of citizens agree that this should be a priority for the EU. Last year over 200 Members of the new European Parliament pledged to use their mandate to help end extreme poverty. Now it’s time for EU leaders to do their part.
We will continue to press our governments to agree to increase the EU’s aid budget to €140 billion over the next 7 years. It is ambitious, but this budget is our ONE chance to end extreme poverty and inequality by 2030, and to tackle the climate crisis before it’s too late.
Your role in securing an agreement is crucial. Please work with EU leaders to find a compromise that increases the EU’s aid budget and delivers for our planet, it’s people and our future.
