*Strasbourg/Press Club/Angelo Marcopolo/- New Strasbourg's Mayor, Jeanne Barseghian, speaking to "Eurofora" Today, at Press-Club Europe, Announced the CoE and EU Activities' City's wish,  Together with that of all France's, (via new EU Affairs Minister Beaune : See Infrs), to Host the Forthcoming EU's "Conference for the Future of Europe", and Agreed with "Eurofora", on this occasion, that an eventual adoption of EU Citizens' Debates with MEPs before Decisions, (according to Our Project), would be "Excellent", (particularly for a Better Communication), in the context of a "Positive" and "Active Strategy" on EU Affairs.

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

    + In the Perspective of an eventual Return of EU Parliament nowadays, the "Regional Health Agency" (ARS) has also established a very "Strict Sanitary Protocol" for Strasbourg's Hotels, also placing a certain number among them under a special "Label" for that purpose, for the 1st Time in History, she added earlier.

    ++ Speaking to Journalists, including "Eurofora", on EU-Parliament related issues, later-on, the New Strasbourg's Mayor Barseghian, stressed that she Aims to advance well Beyond and much "Further than an Old, Passive or Defensive Stance", particularly by adopting, in addition, even an "Active, Forward-looking  Attitude", by "Opening New Perspectives" and Highlighting, f.ex., "also Cultural, Economic, and Other Horizons, in a Positive way".

    => In such a direction , "'f.ex., Strasbourg, which has a strong pro-<<Citizen>> Orientation, (Both by the CoE, and EU Citizens' Defensor-Mediateur,  as well as the ECHR, CLRAE, EU Parliament, CoE's paneuropean Parliamentary Assembly, Shenghen's Free Movement Secretariat and Data Protection, etc), normaly "Shoold Welcome and Host at least the forthcoming Official Launching of EU's Conference on Europe's Future !", Barseghian pointed out.

    >>> "For that purpose, (i.e. EU's Conference on the Future of Europe),  we have already Spoken", inter alia, also "with (the New French Minister on European Affairs), Clement Beaune", (for Beaune's Replies to "Eurofora"s topical Questions, See, f.ex., as Early as since that EU Brussel's Summit, after which, President Macron decided to appoint him as France's New EU Minister, at : ... etc), "as well as with (EU Parliament's President) David Sasoli", she Revealed Today.

    + Such moves, naturaly join also French President Macron's imminent decisions on the 4-Years-Long Paris - Strasbourg Financial Agreement on the City's role as a European Capitals, with which they are expected to be in Harmony, Barseghian added.

    *** But the Most Important, for "Eurofora"'s Project, is the following :  - When We asked the New Strasbourg's Mayor about her above-mentioned "Positive and Active Strategy" on EU Parliament matters (Comp. Supra), Adding, in particular, Our well Known, Long-Standing Proposal for EU "Citizens' Dialogue (Debates) with MEPs Just Before Crucial Decisions are taken on their Lives and/or Society at large, (See, inter alia, also :  +  http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/strasbourgmayoroneuparliament.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/strasbourgvotesarmeniangreenmayor.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/vettercandidatemayoroneuroforaproject.html, etc), which Could seriously Enhance not only the Democratic aspect, but Also the Impact of EU Parliament's main activities throughout all Europe, she appeared very Positive :

    - "Yes, that would be realy Good, and even Excellent, particularly for Communication !", Jeanne Barseghian Agreed, with a Bright Smile, catching on the Fly also "Eurofora"'s Added observation that such Moves should "Mainly" stimulate "the Press" and European Medias...

Pierre Pflimlin's visionary line : Honouring the Memory of the man who wanted to build Europe on the Mountains, based on Spirit !

 

pflimlin.coe.1997_400

One of EuroFora's best inspirators is naturally Pierre Pflimlin :

We had a chance to personally meet the dynamic and experienced former President of both EU Parliament and CoE's Assembly, France's Prime Minister and Strasbourg's Mayor, only at his 90th anniversary, during an Historic speech at the Council of Europe, exceptionally full of people.

But his energetic figure looked more like a youngster of 19 years old, eager to win the Olympic games !..

Visionary, 2P was, from many points of view :

His daughter, Antoinette, Artist-decorator, and Senator Jung, President of a group of friends, confirmed us an Historian's revelation, that Pflimlin had initially the idea to build all European institutions (EU Parliament, Council of Europe, European Court of Human Rights, etc) at the spectacular heights of Oberhausbergen hills, with an eye-catching view of both French Vosges and German Black Forest Mountains, in the midst of a Forest : A real vision to create a brand New European Headquarters with a big ambition !

But, it seems, that "someone in Brussels" found that picture, precisely, too big for his taste, and threw a spanner on the works...

Pflimlin stroke back a Decade ago, at his Historic 1997 farewell speech :

He urged Europeans to find another, more substantial way, to lift Europe to more important Heights in Future :

- "On which basis can we imagine the birth of a great Europe ?", he asked.

"Certainly an Economic basis ! A solid market economy, meeting also the needs of social justice. A Political basis : Europe must become a strong Political Power, able to influence World's changes, naturally for Peace."

"But I believe that the essential foundation of a greater Europe should be of Spiritual nature : .... The great pacific Revolutions were Spiritual Victories" : They expressed "People's main motivation to live in a society with our Values of Liberty, Democracy, respect for Human Dignity".

"Then, the roadmap is ready : Yes, the foundation of the unity for a large Europe is the spiritual heritage, inspired by Christian Humanism and the Humanism of Renaissance, of Enlightenment, from which emerged a Civilisation focused on the Human person".

"Here is the task to be accomplished. It's very difficult".

"The Time approaches when I'll have to pass over the torchlight. God willing, this torch should enlighten the path of those who are going to build, tomorrow, the great Europe, marked by this Spirit".
