It is vital that our European elected representatives remain in contact with our fellow European citizens.

Indeed, although Strasbourg is empty of our usual sessions and we feel this emptiness in the city, the European dynamism seems to be suspended in time.

Nothing is taken for granted, neither the seat which is deserved or not *, nor the dynamism which is the fruit of the heart and the will, of the intelligence and of human action, the whole based on values and projects of society, at the service of the citizens,  peace, prosperity, health ...  even happiness!

It is high time we resumed our usual activities and the rhythms of our activities, apart from the artificial, superficial meetings of teleworking in confined or eight-cambered mode... this is not the purpose of Europe.

The reality, as you well know, is also the field, the meetings, the sharing, and the conviviality. The essential tool of communication must remain a support, a complement to the work, but it must not be the only priority !

We must not allow a vacuum to develop between the institutions and the public. This is also true for the staff of institutions that feel this void.

Let us avoid a vacuum that is too full of distance or remoteness, which could create a gap between the institutions and the citizens, a dimension of widespread misunderstanding.

Fröhlichkeit, Geselligkeit und Dynamik


Es ist von entscheidender Bedeutung, dass unsere europäischen Volksvertreter mit unseren europäischen Mitbürgern in Kontakt bleiben.

Obwohl Straßburg von unseren üblichen Sitzungen leer ist und wir diese Leere in der Stadt spüren, scheint die europäische Dynamik mit der Zeit aufgehoben zu sein.

Nichts ist selbstverständlich, weder der Sitz, der verdient oder nicht *, noch die Dynamik, die die Frucht des Herzens und des Willens, der Intelligenz und des menschlichen Handelns ist, das Ganze auf der Grundlage von Werten und Projekten der Gesellschaft, im Dienste der Bürger, des Friedens, des Wohlstands, der Gesundheit ...  sogar des Glücks!

Es ist höchste Zeit, dass wir die gewohnten Aktivitäten und den Rhythmus unserer Aktivitäten wieder aufnehmen, abgesehen von den künstlichen, oberflächlichen Treffen der Telearbeit im begrenzten oder geschlossenen Modus ... das ist nicht der Zweck Europas.

Die Realität ist, wie Sie wissen, auch das Feld, die Treffen, das Teilen, die Geselligkeit. Das wesentliche Instrument der Kommunikation muss eine Unterstützung, eine Ergänzung der Arbeit bleiben, aber es darf nicht die einzige Priorität sein!

Wir dürfen nicht zulassen, dass zwischen den Institutionen und der Öffentlichkeit ein Vakuum entsteht. Dies gilt auch für die Mitarbeiter der Institutionen, die diese Leere spüren.

Vermeiden wir eine Leere, die zu sehr von Distanz oder Abgeschiedenheit geprägt ist, was zu eine Dimension weit verbreiteter Missverständnisse.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,

Patrick Bracker

Felicità, convivialità e dinamismo


È fondamentale che i nostri rappresentanti eletti europei rimangano in contatto con i nostri concittadini europei.

Infatti, anche se Strasburgo è vuota delle nostre solite sessioni e sentiamo questo vuoto nella città, il dinamismo europeo sembra essere sospeso nel tempo.

Nulla è dato per scontato, né la sede che si merita o meno *, né il dinamismo che è frutto del cuore e della volontà, dell'intelligenza e dell'azione umana, il tutto basato su valori e progetti della società, al servizio dei cittadini, della pace, della prosperità, della salute ...  e persino della felicità!

È giunto il momento di riprendere le consuete attività e i ritmi delle nostre attività, a parte gli incontri artificiali e superficiali del telelavoro in modalità confinata o chiusa... non è questo lo scopo dell'Europa.

La realtà, come ben sapete, è anche il campo, gli incontri, la condivisione, la convivialità. Lo strumento essenziale della comunicazione deve rimanere un supporto, un complemento al lavoro, ma non deve essere l'unica priorità!

Non dobbiamo permettere che si crei un vuoto tra le istituzioni e il pubblico. Questo vale anche per il personale delle istituzioni che sentono questo vuoto.

Evitiamo un vuoto troppo pieno di distanza o di lontananza, che potrebbe portare a una mancanza di fiducia,

una dimensione di diffusa incomprensione.

Sinceramente vostro,

Patrick Bracker

Bonheur, Convivialité et Dynamisme

 

Il est vital que nos élus européens restent en contact avec nos concitoyens européens.

En effet si Strasbourg est bien vide de nos sessions habituelles et l'on ressent ce vide en ville, le dynamisme européen semble en suspens dans le temps

Rien n'est acquis, ni le siège qui se mérite ou pas *, ni le dynamisme qui est le fruit du coeur et de la volonté, de l’intelligence et de l'action humaine, le tout fondé sur des valeurs et projets de société, au service des citoyens, paix, prospérité, santé ...  même du bonheur!

Il serait grand temps de reprendre les activités usuelles et les rythmes de nos activités, hors les réunions artificielles, superficielles du télétravail en mode confiné ou huit clos... ce n'est pas là le but de l'Europe.

La réalité, comme vous le savez bien c'est aussi le terrain, les rencontres, les partages, la convivialité. L'outil essentiel de la communication doit rester un soutien, une complémentarité aux travaux, mais ne pas représenter la seule priorité!

Il ne faudrait pas laisser se creuser un vide entre les institutions et les citoyens, cela est vrai aussi pour les personnels des institutions qui ressentent ce vide.

Évitons un vide trop rempli de distance ou d'éloignement, qui pourrait créer une dimension d'incompréhension généralisée.

Bien à vous,

Patrick Bracker

    EU-educated charming young Chinese presence started to be felt in Council of Europe's corridors in Strasbourg at the aftermath of an Historic Resolution adopted by its Parliamentary Assembly in favor of opening the possibility to give China a special "Status" in the PanEuropean Organization.

    - "My proposal to offer to China an official status as "Observer", in short term, under conditions, was welcomed" by the CoE : "The road to Dialogue between China and the CoE has now been opened", declared after Strasbourg's debates and votes the Head of France's delegation, MEP Jean-Claude Mignon.

    "Neither complacency, nor a mere condamnation of China", but a "wise approach of a political issue of great importance", advised Mignon to all those who'd either overload claims on Democracy, Human Rights or Minorities, or close their eyes to anything, there as elsewhere... A balance which was not exactly followed during debates, contrary to Mignon's personal stance, which appeared rather even-handed.

    China is the only UNO Security Council permanent member which has not yet any status at the CoE, being still obliged to be represented in Strasbourg by a General Consul : USA and Canada, even Japan and .. Mexico, have already got a special Status at the CoE, following Strasbourg's decision, back in 1995, to counter-balance the accession of Russia (1996) by creating special links to traditional "Western-world" allies.

    All former "Socialist" Eastern European countries started to have relations whith the CoE through its former sector on Culture and Education, before becoming full Members of Strasbourg's paneuropean organization. Speculations were unfolding recently about establishing a probable concrete link with China through the topical issue of anti-doping in Sport, on the occasion of the 2008 Olympic games.

    More spectacular, a meeting co-organized a few years ago in Strasbourg, by EuroFora and the International Space University between EU Parliament's long-time Rapporteur for EU's Satellite Navigation system "GALILEO", German MEP Brigitte Langenhagen, and a group of postgraduate students, attracted special interest from Chinese experts, and was followed, in less than a month, by the anouncement of China's intention to support EU's GALILEO project with a participation of 200 million €.

    Compared to that, revendications of .. "Turkish" Minorities, by Turkish MEPs, this week in Strasbourg, spreading through a wide area extended ...from Greece up to China, appeared less worrying, than pittoresque...

    Meanwhile, France's political will to start involving China and other important countries in European and Global affairs was due to be raised also at the forthcoming G-8 Summit in Japan by President Nicolas SARKOZY, (NDLR  : confirmed on July 5)

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
