*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/
- Replying Today to "Eurofora" Questions at the Press Conference on the 2021 Euro-Fair, (3-13 September 2021), which Traditionaly marks the Start of a New Economic and Political Season at the Franco-German Core of Europe, "Strasbourg-Events"' new Board President, Salem Drici, stressed the Growing Importance of both a "Green" and Digital Transitions on the making.

    "Eurofora", pointing at the splendid "Green" area, adjacent to the ReNovated and Extended Strasbourg's "Palace of Music and Congress" (PMC), where, for the 1st Time, the "Euro-Fair"s 2021 installations had just Started to be set up nowadays, (See relevant Photo), asked whether such an ostensibly "Green" atmosphere would be Developed also throughout the current "Transition" towards the 2022 opening of the "PEX" (for "Excibitions" Parc") New Mega-Building (designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma), given Also the notorious Healthy effects of Natural Oxygen open spaces, including in Facing the Virus' Pandemic...

    + In addition, we raised also a question on the potential importance of "Digital" aspects in Strasbourg's EuroFair (Comp., already : ..., etc) and Other such Mega-Events, both Nowadays and in the foreseable Future.

    - "Concerning your ("Eurofora"'s) Question on the "Transition" (2021-2022), indeed, we curently are in a Trend towards Increasing "Hybrid" events, with Both Presential and a Remote Parts, during the Coming Years. And, in "Strasbourg-Events", we Already have the Capacity to produce such Hybrid Events, and wish to Develop that", President Drici stressed.

    - "But, there will Always be a substantial part of Presential, because it's Important to Help People actualy and physicaly Meet eachother, as "Man is a Social Animal", and that's a Key element in our idea about the Human Relations", he also pointed out.

    + "On the Ecological Transition, we are very sensitive, and, indeed, wish to have several Eco-Responsible Modifications", he went on to Reply to our 2nd Question (Comp. Supra). "Therefore, we will be very keen into Including that ("Green") Dimension in All Events that we shall propose during the Next Years", Drici vowed. "Together with the Carbon-trace of all our activities", he added.

    ++ Similarly, Marie Lathoud, Director of Events' Organisation at the same entity, Replied to "Eurofora" that : - "Concerning the Natural Green Enironment issues and Transition, we are very sensitive, indeed. The New PEX (due to open on 2022) will have a special "Square", helpful for that purpose. It's also Strasbourg's "EuroMetropole" (with its New Chairwoman, Pia Imbs) which is sensitive on such matters", she observed.

- "On your ("Eurofora"'s) Question about the "Digital" Transition, this year (2021) we wanted mainly to help People meet eachother, physically", Lathoud explained. "But we have the capacity to produce Digital and "Hybrid" Events, and we shall use it in the forseable future. In the meantime, "Orange" (Mega-Phone-Company), which will be present this year, is due to make some interesting proposals", she announced. "Moreover, recently, we observed an impressive augmentation of Social Medias' discussions on the forthcoming Euro-Fair, bigger than ever"...

    With more than 300 entities presenting their activities and products, (not only from France, but also from Germany, Italy, and Other Countries, even China, etc), this Euro-Fair 2021 extends throughout some 30.000 m2, Outdoor areas included, adding PMC's Mega-Halls of 12.500 and 4.800 m2, will be Inaugurated on September 3, by Strasbourg's new, atypical "Green" Mayor, Jeanne Barseghian, (Comp. Barseghian's Replies to "Eurofora"s topical Questions at last year's 2020 Inauguration in : ..., etc), and a Political personality whose Identity will be officialy disclosed asap, as Lathoud told us.

-------------------------------------------------

    Meanwhile, President Macron's centrist pick for the 2020 Municipal Elections, former Socialist Deputy-Mayor Fontanel, didn't manage to win that bid, comming 2nd together with Center-Right's Republican young candidate Vetter, (See both's statements to "Eurofora", at : ... + ..., etc), but his Wife became the New French Ambassador/Permanent Representative to the CoE, (See, f.ex.: ..., etc), while, Nowadays, after important Post-Merkel German Parliamentary Elections nearby, later this year (2021), France notoriously prepares to enter a Crucial Period of forthcoming Presidential and Legislative Elections in the First Half of 2022, during which it would take over the rotating Presidency of the EU.

    The 88e Euro-Fair, Last Year, 2020, was the 1st in France to Dare Open Despite the Virus' Pandemic, while EU Parliament had Exceptionaly Suspended its Monthly Plenaries in Strasbourg. Euro-MEPs have now re-Started their Return back here recently, But it's still UnCertain what Impact might have on this 2021 Euro-Fair the Controversial "Sanitary Pass" just Imposed on most Collective Events... Drici claimed, earlier, that this would be a "Good Chance" for the Euro-Fair Organizers, mainly because it might ensure an Easy Identification of officialy certified Healthy People, (even if, in fact, this is not sure at all, given the currently growing Infections of and/or by so-called "Vaccinated" individuals using some new but few, controversial "novel tools" Authorized until now by the EU as "Vaccines", while still Excluding many others, and particularly "Classic" Vaccines based on Pasteur's main principles : See: .... + ..., etc). But, since All Not yet Vaccinated People would be "Pushed Back" from that EU-Fair 2021, as he added, (unless they have just passed a controlled "Test", with negative results, during the Last 3 Days), Obviously, it remains to be seen what might, eventualy, happen on the traditional Popularity of this Mega-Event...

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.

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 ?
