The political strategy of this Commission is to set Europe on a path to successfully achieving climate neutrality by 2050, shaping our digital future, strengthening our unique social market economy, building a Union of prosperity, and making Europe stronger in the world. This Commission is taking action to address the challenges ahead and put the necessary building blocks in place for a better future for all Europeans. This work programme sets out targeted action to complete delivery on the ambitions the Commission set at the start of the mandate and further steer the Union towards sustainable recovery. It also lists the key legislative proposals that should get priority in the legislative process to ensure swift implementation on the ground across all six of the Commission’s headline ambitions: (A European Green Deal -  Europe aims to be the first climate-neutral continent by becoming a modern, resource-efficient economy / A Europe fit for the digital age -  The EU’s digital strategy will empower people with a new generation of technologies / An economy that works for people -  The EU must create a more attractive investment environment, and growth that creates quality jobs, especially for young people and small businesses / A stronger Europe in the world -  The EU will strengthen its voice in the world by championing multilateralism and a rules-based global order / Promoting our European way of life -  Europe must protect the rule of law if it is to stand up for justice and the EU’s core values/ A new push for European democracy - We need to give Europeans a bigger say and protect our democracy from external interference such as disinformation and online hate messages).
