Communication published by the European Commission on 19 October 2021, setting out its annual work programme (CWP 2022).

Further information:

Every year, the European Commission adopts a Work Programme setting out the list of actions to take in the coming year. The Work Programme informs the public and the co-legislators of our political commitments to present new initiatives, withdraw pending proposals and review existing EU legislation.

The Commission's Work Programme for 2022 contains 42 policy initiatives across six headline ambitions, based on the Political Guidelines made public by the President of European Commission and her latest State of the European Union (SOTEU) speech. It also reflects the lessons learnt from the crisis caused by the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, and a forthcoming European Year of Youth.

The six headline ambitions are as follows:

  • European Green Deal
  • A Europe fit for the digital age
  • An economy that works for people
  • A stronger Europe in the world
  • Promoting our European way of life
  • A new push for European democracy

The Communication was published by the European Commission on 19 October 2021.
