*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- Modern Web Technologies give a Chance to put Europe at Citizens' hands, instead of just Bureaucrats, and we must explore this potential in the foreseable Future, Replied in substance to our Question about "Eurofora"s project the Top Candidate in the forthcoming EU Elections, President of EU Parliament's Biggest Group, that of ChristianDemocrats/EPP, German MEP Manfred Weber, who is also SpitzenKandidate for the Next EU Commission's Presidency in the period of 2019-2024.

- "Eurofora" had asked Weber whether the recent Problems attested in Many Countries in the World about Citizens' Distance or even mistrust vis a vis Public Institutions, should be Faced in Europe also by Activating a largely untapped yet Potential of EU's Lisbon Treaty to Develop "Regular Dialogue" between "Civil Society" and "European Institutions" on their main "Actions", particularly by using the Simple and Easy Links nowadays offered by Internet TeleCommunications, with Regular Debates Before important Decisions are taken, which affect People's Lives and/or Society at large.

- Indeed, "Internet offers Opportunities to increase the Participation of (EU) Citizens", Weber agreed from the outset.

=> - "So, we (EU) have to look for Modern Bases in order to involve People", he urged.

>>> - Because "Europe must be in the Hands of (EU) Citizens !", Manfred Weber argued, going at the Heart of the Matter.

 - Since, in fact, EU's Future is "Not just about Bureaucrats, Technicians, or Politicians alone : It's (now) more up to the Citizens, he concluded in his Reply to the above-mentioned "Eurofora"s Question

+ Meanwhile, Weber had just Stressed the Importance that he gives to practical and efficient, democratic "Compromises" in European Policy, which enable various forces to Work "Together".  

Significantly, he was Speaking shortly after an Exceptional - and, probably, his Concluding - Press Conference at EU Parliament in Strasbourg, at the Last Plenary Session of this April 2019, before the Crucial EU Elections on May.

- Following some recent "Crisis", (as, f.ex., that of "BREXIT", a sudden Mass Migration huge "Tsunami" mainly through Turkey (on 2015/2016+), etc., People need, Now, in Europe, mainly a "Stability", he observed.

- This includes, particularly, Recent and Forthcoming, Future Developments mainly in order to Protect the "Security" of Citizens, to efficiently Face the Challenge of "Mass Migration", as well as to pursue Further Europe's "Economic Growth", he Highlighted, in a threefold plan.

On this occasion, Weber symbolically announced that he intends to Start his official pre-Electoral EU Camaign, next Tuesday, "in Greece".

Meanwhile, he had already expressed, from the outset, his Solidarity also with France, concerning Yesterday's (Monday evening's), non-elucidated yet, UnPrecedented Fire and partial Desruction of the landmark, Popular Historic and UNESCO Monument of "Notre Dame de Paris" almost Millenary Cathedral :

- "It's not only French, but also our European common History and Identity", stressed the Top ChristianDemocrat/EPP political leader from Germany, since the Beginning of his Statements to Journalists today.

F.ex. "Eurofora"'s co-Founder remembers, indeed, the fact that, when just a Child aged only 11, spontaneously got the shivers, when visiting the awesome "Notre Dame de Paris"' upper Floors (those that were, precisely, Destroyed by an unprecedented Fire yesterday), heading right in front of the SunLight, and thinking at the Historic People's Human lives and Social struggles, as unforgettably depicted by the World-famous Writer Victor Hugo there...

Europe brings Development dynamics at Global Crisis' Summit debates

eudevdays_400



    Thanks also to EU Parliament Plenary's Strasbourg gathering, EU, during the French EU Presidency, managed to integrate the Development issues at Top Debates on the World Summit against the Economic Crisis  :

    For the 1st time, it's at the same moment with the Wahington G-20 Summit that EU Commissioner Louis Michel co-organizes here with the French EU Presidency parallel mega-events for the "European Development Days", starting from this Week-End and concluding at the eve of a landmark debate in EU Parliament, next Tuesday, on the outcome and follow-up of the Wash.DC Summit.

    EU and its Member Countries are the biggest donor for UNO's Millenium Development goals, with 56%, but the 27 are currently struggling to develop a collective leadership in Economic and social matters, that the 15 of EuroGroup (together with the UK and other countries interested to be usefully associated) are starting to spearhead, after the initial success of the 1st EuroZone Heads of State and Government Summit, of October 12 in Paris, according to a New Repport by MEPs Pervench Beres and Werner Langen on the 10 Years of EuroZone (1999-2009) debated Monday and voted on Tuesday.

    EU, CoE and World personalities will interact here with Heads of State or Government from Tanzania (African Union chair), Burkina Faso (CEDEAO + UEMOA chair), Zimbabwe (MDC chair), Madagascar, Haiti, Mali, Benin, etc, and some 3000 participants from the Economy, Civil Society, Media, Experts, etc, while the City of Strasbourg adds various related Citizen-events.

    Opened by French Secretary of State Alain Joyandet on November 15, and followed by a video-contact with EU Commission President Jose Baroso on the Washington Summit Sunday, the EDD are concluded by Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner on Monday, while their main concerns cannot be ignored in the Debate that EU Parliament will hold on Tuesday, (followed by a Resolution on Wednesday), jointly on the G-20 Washington Summit and on EU Commission's work program for 2009.

    A practical opportunity for EU to reflect where it's better to spend EU Citizens' money...

    The move is prolonged in several Paris' meetings of EU chair, French President Nicolas Sarkozy with African Heads of State leading regional Organizations, as from Tanzania (A.U. Chair), Burkina Faso (chair of Economic African organizations), Togo, etc, (in parallel with a Ministerial EU - African Union conference in Ethiopia, followed by a visit to Tchad), logically concluded by a meeting with Robert Zoellic President of the World Bank.

    Many have already warned that an eventual aggravation of Development's Gap accross the World might become much more dangerous to Global Economy, Security, Values and Quality of Life, than Global Warming and/or other, even more serious challenges...

    Will they find an innovative and voluntarist way to really deal with the Development Gap, which might also contribute to help face the Economic Crisis ?

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 ?
