President Message

Dear friends.

When we were together in Copenhagen last year there was a lot of discussion about EOA talking with European Union authorities in Brussels and even more large organizations such as the Red Cross and World Health Organization. We in EOA made ourselves visible at an Open Day in the Parliament of EU in Brussels at the beginning of December 2017. Two delegates from EOA were invited to take part in discussions there and they made EOA both seen and heard with a few questions that the EOA-EC together had prepared in advance. So far nothing concrete has come from this effort but we plan to try to do this again. If we go there often enough perhaps we will be heard in the end. If any of our member organizations have the possibility to get invited to this event they should perhaps try for that. The more in numbers we are there, the louder we can be.

Dear friends,

Now it is about a month since we departed in Copenhagen after a short but very fruitful conference. We had quite a few interesting lectures, we had talks and a few laughs.

I thank all those that came to Copenhagen and to those that weren’t able to come I can only say that I hope to see them on our next conference in Italy.
