RIP former chancellor Helmut Kohl

THE FFPE ASSOCIATES ITSELF WITH THE SOLEMN TRIBUTE TO FORMER
CHANCELLOR HELMUT KOHL
 
The FFPE fully associates itself with the decision taken at the highest level to pay a solemn tribute to Chancellor Helmut Kohl on Saturday 1 July in Strasbourg.

There is no need to retrace Helmut Kohl's personal and political journey to understand that he was a true statesman, not only for Germany but for Europe as a whole!

The key points that motivate us are:

FFPE MEMORANDUM ON ACTIVE AGEING WITHIN THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION

Foreword by the FFPE's President, Pierre-Philippe Bacri

Opportunities for 55+ colleagues: the FEDERATION's proposals

Sooner or later, all the institutions' officials and many other staff are going to join the
"55+" group. The institution should therefore make the best use of their talents
throughout their careers: not just in its own interest, but also to promote job-satisfaction
(the two goals are mutually supportive).

The Federation wishes to celebrate 9 May 2017, Europe Day

The Federation wishes to celebrate 9 May 2017, Europe Day.
It supports the values underlying European integration.
 As a result, the Federation expects the Commission to launch a step forward based on an explicit clarification of the European project that can garner popular support.
 
In this year marking 60th anniversary of the Treaties of Rome, participation in the Europe Day celebrations and recalling the spirit and vision underlying Robert Schuman's Declaration of 9 May 1950 make even more sense.
