Even during the breaks, there was plenty of constructive
discussion of the topics, lectures and papers.
The short walk with the stone slab on a handcart through the
streets from the UEAPME to the European Parliament building took
about 20 minutes, but would only have taken half as long if
passers-by hadn’t been so interested.
Austrian member of the EU Parliament Agnes Schierhuber
welcomed the EACD, of whose advisory committee she is a member.
This was followed in the plenum by explanations and illustrations
of the work and function of the EU Parliament.
An approximately 100 million years old cephalopod/ammonite
had been deposited in the Soest slab of “Anröchter” dolomite and
turned to stone. Embedded opposite it is the new emblem of the
European Master of Craft ® made of metamorphically crystallised.
Moving quickly on from the Parliament building to the
Commissariat, we arrived a further 20 minutes later at the stone
memorial to Robert Schumann, the campaigner for a united Europe.
On the occasion of the completion of the tour, Hendrik
Mattenklodt, who led the prayers at the public service of the EACF,
had travelled from St. Maria zur Wiese in Soest to Brussels.
In the course of the meeting on the 10th floor, EACD
president Jürgen Prigl, cathedral builder in Soest, presented a
stone emblem of the new Master of Craft ® qualification to cabinet
member Dr. Bernd Bierviert from the Commission for General and
Vocational Training, Culture and Youth. This artistic piece of
inlay work was created by the firm of former president KR TR Franz
Bamberger in Traiskirchen near Vienna.
