As many parts of the world were feeling the effect of climate-related natural disasters, a deep dive into the history and workings of the EU Civil Protection Mechanism couldn’t have been more timely. I was honoured to help EU MODEX celebrate its 10th anniversary, and transform what would have been an in-person event into an exciting television and live-stream broadcast.

Thanks to the terrific team at TIDE-TV in Hamburg that took on this project for the European Commission … with first-person stories from a decade of Civil Protection exercises it not only galvanized a diverse expert community, but also made it clear why EU MODEX is more important than ever.

Introducing Mo, the new EU MODEX Mascot.
