*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...

Speaking exclusively to "EuroFora", the New EU Parliament's President, former Polish Prime Minister, ChristianDemocrat/EPP MEP Jerzy Busek, welcomed proposals by EuroFora about innovative ways for EU Citizens to attend EU debates before important final decisions which affect people's lives.

- "We (EU Parliament) must be transparent", Buzek stressed from the outset.  "We must have clear answers also for delicate questions. If we don't touch a problem, you must know why, and when shall we decide in the nearest future".. "Because "we (EU) must think about Europeans, first of all : They don't understand well what is going on in the EU. So, it's our duty to inform them, to make discussions here more interesting".

"EuroFora" congratulated President Buzek for the anouncement he made, from the 1st day of his election in Strasbourg (on Tuesday, 14 July 2009), on his intention to make  transparent debates, exchanges of views, etc. before the final adoption of decisions in EU Parliament's Plenary, when issues are evolving inside Committees, (See earlier publication).

And we reminded, in this regard, that "EuroFora" has been advocating a project for EU Citizens' active involvement in pluralist EU debates before important EU decisions, since more than a Decade : 1997-2007+

- "Thank you. We (EU Parliament), indeed, have exciting debates", Buzek replied. But, in practice, "without a possibility for our Citizens to see them, not even by the Press, the Radio or TV, etc., because it is in Committees", he regreted.

- "But, they (i.e. Media, Citizens, etc) might interact with you, with MEPs, etc, May be we can imagine something", "EuroFora" proposed.

- "Yes, (but) it needs, a quite new idea", Buzed observed.

- "Why not through some innovations ?", "EuroFora" suggested.

- "Innovation ? That's it. Fantastic  New Information Technologies !", Buzek realized.

- "Precisely, "EuroFora" has such a project, since more than a Decade (1997-2009), to use new technologies for public debates before major EU decisions are taken", we reminded.

- "If you have such proposals, please come to us, come to us. We must" do something, agreed the new EU Parliamen's President.

    This fits with Buzek's main stance, expressed at EU Parliament's plenary earlier this week in Strasbourg, that the European Union must succeed to overcome a "Crisis of Trust" vis a vis EU Citizens. (See previous EuroFora publication).

    For that purpose, obviously information and debates are valuable, but purely instrumental, procedural means which can help focus on, and highlight a substantial content, attractive to EU Citizens, which needs to be determined by other, political, and not mediatic factors.  

    Buzek spoke about the urgent need to overcome the Global Economic Crisis,  the struggle for Human and Civic Rights, Democracy, etc., the Eastern Partnership, links with Russia, strategic partnership with USA and emerging countries, etc.

    But he also used (while speaking both to "EuroFora" and other Media) the expression : "The Europeans", for EU Citizens. This points right towards what several important EU leaders (including French President Sarkozy, German Chancellor Merkel, etc) have started to highlight particularly during the recent years : That there is a vital need, and an historic opportunity, for the development of a European Conscience, to stimulate e renaissance of a European Identity able to attract Popular support, for the EU to become a strong player in a Multopolar World : In other words, the revitalisation of a project for a "Political Europe".

    By a coincidence, this was indirectly but surely reminded, earlier in Strasbourg, by another ... Busek (this time with a "s") : 

busekcoe_400

    Speaking to more than 650 participants from CoE's member countries, at the conclusion of the 2009 Summer University of its Political Schools, Erhard Busek, (with an "s"), former vice-Chancellor of Austria and EU Coordinator for South-Eastern Europe, pointed at the current need to revitalize Europe's "Identity", forged by Greek philosophy and Roman Law, Christian values and Enlightment's ideas, etc. through the ages.     

- "We have almost the same name with Jerzy Buzek (EU Parliament's new President, who is a former Polish Prime Minister), because both our Families come ...from  the same village, located at the Heart of Europe, which was often shared between Poland, Germany and the Czech Republic. But my family emmigrated a long time ago to Austria, while Jerzy Buzek's family remained in Poland", explained f. vice-Chancellor Erhard Busek to "EuroFora".   

 An astonishingly concrete and simple example of European Integration from the grassroots : Starting by EU Citizens, i.e. those "Europeans", that EU Parliament's new President, Jerzy Buzek (this time with a "z"), wants to bring alongside MEP's decision-making proces, (according to "EuroFora"'s main idea : Comp. supra)...
