Visitors were invited to a fun treasure hunt to discover the places and the different aspects of the house.  Find elements of the construction, in the time frieze or on the large pan-European map or even in the heart of wall tapestries, decode a name, or find the number of pillars that support the hemicycle, locate values and answer some rebus or research in the area.   

At each stage of the treasure hunt, there was a growing public interest in the Palace's treasures, including the discovery of gifts made over the years by Member States to the Institution. The visitors' efforts were rewarded with gifts: by passing by to present the result of their research at the dedicated stand, where the charming hostesses of the Council distributed bags or magnets, pens or posters in addition to their good advice and lovely smiles.  

The courageous visitors could then go to the European Court of Human Rights to continue their journey of discovering the jewel of the Council of Europe.

Ein angenehmer Tag der offenen Tür beim Europarat.

Die Besucher wurden zu einer lustigen Schatzsuche eingeladen, um die Orte und die verschiedenen Aspekte des Hauses zu entdecken.  Finden Sie Elemente des Baus, im Zeitrahmen oder auf der großen paneuropäischen Karte oder sogar im Herzen von Wandteppichen, entschlüsseln Sie einen Namen oder finden Sie die Anzahl der Säulen, die den Plenarsaal stützen, Werte lokalisieren und auf einen Rebus oder eine Forschung in der Region antworten.

In jeder Phase der Schatzsuche wuchs das öffentliche Interesse an den Schätzen des Palastes, einschließlich der Entdeckung von Geschenken, die die Mitgliedstaaten im Laufe der Jahre an das Organ gemacht haben.  Die Bemühungen der Besucher wurden mit Geschenken belohnt: Sie kamen vorbei, um das Ergebnis ihrer Forschung auf dem eigenen Stand zu präsentieren, wo die charmanten Hostessen des Rates neben ihrem guten Rat und ihrem schönen Lächeln auch Taschen oder Magnete, Stifte oder Poster verteilten.  

Mutige Besucher konnten dann zum Europäischen Gerichtshof für Menschenrechte gehen, um ihre Reise zur Entdeckung des Juwels des Europarates fortzusetzen.  

In diesem spielerischen Spiel bilden Geographie, Kunst, Werte oder Reflexion eine Reihe von Realitäten, die von den Akteuren des Großraums Europa und den Mitarbeitern des Europarates täglich erlebt werden. Ausstellungen, die die vielfältigen Aktivitäten des Instituts in den letzten 70 Jahren zeigen, wie die Landschaftskonvention oder die Ausstellung, die die wichtigen Phasen der europäischen Integration zusammenfasst.

Zu diesem 70-jährigen Jubiläum 1949-2019 kamen begeisterte und interessierte Besucher in großer Zahl, ein großer paneuropäischer Erfolg in einer freundlichen Atmosphäre!

Una piacevole giornata di apertura al Consiglio d'Europa.

I visitatori sono stati invitati ad una divertente caccia al tesoro per scoprire i luoghi e i diversi aspetti della casa. Trovare elementi della costruzione, nell'arco temporale o sulla grande mappa paneuropea o anche nel cuore degli arazzi delle pareti, decodificare un nome, o trovare il numero di pilastri che sostengono l'emiciclo, localizzare i valori e rispondere a qualche rebus o ricerca nell'area.   

In ogni fase della caccia al tesoro si è registrato un crescente interesse del pubblico per i tesori del palazzo, compresa la scoperta dei doni che gli Stati membri hanno fatto nel corso degli anni all'istituzione.  Gli sforzi dei visitatori sono stati premiati con regali: passando a presentare il risultato della loro ricerca presso lo stand dedicato, dove le affascinanti hostess del Consiglio hanno distribuito borse o magneti, penne o poster, oltre ai loro buoni consigli e sorrisi.  

I visitatori coraggiosi potrebbero poi recarsi alla Corte europea dei diritti dell'uomo per continuare il loro viaggio alla scoperta del gioiello del Consiglio d'Europa.  

Attraverso questo gioco ludico, la geografia, l'arte, i valori o la riflessione costituiscono un insieme di realtà vissute quotidianamente dagli attori della Grande Europa e dallo staff del Consiglio d'Europa. Mostre che illustrano le numerose attività dell'istituzione negli ultimi 70 anni, come la Convenzione sul paesaggio o la mostra che riassume le tappe importanti dell'integrazione europea.  .  

Per questo 70° anniversario 1949-2019, i visitatori entusiasti e interessati sono arrivati in gran numero, un grande successo paneuropeo in un'atmosfera amichevole!

Une agréable journée porte ouverte au Conseil de l’Europe.

Les visiteurs étaient invités à un jeu de piste ludique pour découvrir les lieux et les différents aspects de la maison.  Trouver des éléments de la construction, dans la frise temporelle ou sur la grande carte paneuropéenne voire au cœur de tapisseries murales,  décoder un  nom, ou trouver le nombre de piliers qui soutiennent l’hémicycle, localiser des valeurs et répondre à quelque rébus ou de recherche dans le périmètre.   

À chaque étape du jeu de piste, se développait l’intérêt accru du public aux trésors du Palais, avec notamment la découverte des cadeaux faits au fil des années par les Etats membres à l’Institution.  Les efforts des visiteurs étaient couronnés par l’octroi de cadeaux : en passant présenter le résultat de leur recherche au stand dédié, où les charmantes hôtesses du Conseil  distribuaient outre leurs bons conseils et ravissants sourires, des sacs ou des magnets, des stylos ou des posters.  

Les visiteurs courageux pouvaient ensuite se rendre à la Cour Européenne des Droits de l’Homme pour continuer leur chemin de découverte du joyau du conseil de l’Europe.  

À travers ce jeu ludique, la géographie, l’art, les  valeurs ou la réflexion constituent un ensemble de réalités vécues au quotidien par les acteurs de la Grande Europe et les personnels du Conseil de l’Europe. Les expositions  montrant  les  activités multiples de l’Institution  depuis 70 ans, comme  la convention sur le paysage ou l’exposition récapitulant les étapes importantes de la construction européenne.  

Pour ce 70ème anniversaire  1949-2019, les visiteurs enthousiastes et intéressés sont venus en nombre, une belle réussite paneuropéenne dans une ambiance conviviale !

Fillon invites EU to invent "New Horizons" behind Oil crisis

A pioneer Franco-German research project on GeoThermy, near Strasbourg, served as "Symbol" of EU's will to become Independent on Energy by developing innovative Technologies, while imported Oil prices threaten to provoke a World-wide crisis.

It's essential to demonstrate Europe's will to "invent New Horizons", by creating Environment-friendly, Independent and Renewable Energy sources, while price rises continue for Oil, a polluting old ressource with insufficient stocks, stressed French Prime Minister Francois Fillon, anouncing that this will be a focus during the forthcoming French EU Presidency (July - December 2008).

Fillon symbolically injected a 1st KWh produced by GeoThermy into Strasbourg's Electricity grid, during a special gathering of German and French officials at Soultz-under-Forests ("Soultz-sous-Forêts"), using a geothermal innovation which is "the most advanced in the World" :

The innovation uses Strasbourg's underground water richness to capture Heat, by injecting liquid among Rocks 5 km deep, where temperature is 200 c. Thus, it can be activated at any moment and location, even without natural warm water springs : A big advantage compared to old biothermal tools.

Engineers, Scientists and the Industry will have 2 Years to invent practical ways for this innovation to become productive and cost-efficient in real Economy, said Fillon.

115 Millions of Euros invested, 15 Research Labos, 430 Scientific Publications including 34 Doctoral PhD, and a systematic cooperation between French and German Governments and Public Agencies on Research, succeeded to prove that the new method works.

Already able to serve Electricity to a village with 1.500 inhabitants, the pioneer project intends to reach a capacity to serve 20.000 inhabitants before 2015, as part of a larger Plan to make all Renewable Energy Resources (together with Wind, Solar, etc) able to cover more than 23% of all Electricity needs before 2020.

- In fact, "behind the challenge" faced with the current Oil crisis, there "is a New Horizon that we can shape all together", by "creating New Tools for the Future", Fillon launched towards EU Member States.

Meanwhile, we should intensify Energy Savings, simplify Transports, and help the Poorest cope with growing Oil prices, until EU joins a World-wide lead into inventing reliable and sufficient Renewable Energy Sources, he added.

Many, technologic and other Challenges exist, but they can be overcome : F. ex. the new GeoThermic method tested at Shoultz since 1987, had provoked an Earthquake at a nearby site, close to Bale, by injecting big volumes of pressurized Water in underground broken Rocks near a Seismic Faultline in 2003. But the move was rectified later-on, by diminishing the amount and pressure of the water injected in underground rocks, so that no Earthquake is provoked.

More than 1 Billion Euros are invested by France on Scientific and Technologic Research about Sustainable Development until 2012, aiming to take a 10 years advance, there where innovation can become source of Growth, Competitivity and Jobs, which, according to some evaluations could reach more than 220.000 before 2020, Fillon observed.

During the forthcoming French EU Presidency, together with our German friends, we shall do all necessary efforts for Europe's World-wide lead against Global Warming, thanks to Energy tools able to ensure its Independence, Growth, and Citizens' well-being, he concluded.

The "Enhanced Geothermal System" (EGS) stems from pioneer research initiated by teams from France, Germany and Italy, joined also by Swiss, the U.K., and Sweden, even U.S. and Japan, since the 90ies.

In 1996, a European Economic Interest Group (GEIE) was founded, in order to exploit Electricity-produsing Heat from deep underground Rocks, including France's EDF and Germany's PfalzWerke.

In 2002, a Pilot scientific project started to be tested in Soultz-under-Forests, 50 kms north of Strasbourg.
