Message from the chairwoman

President's Editorial

Perhaps we don’t remember it enough! There is only one Europe, the one with the most efficient knowledge-based economy. The one that prides itself on being at peace for two generations. The one that the whole world envies us for the attractiveness of its higher and vocational education on all continents.
To join the FEDE project is first of all to rejoice in participating in this Europe of success, trust and solidarity.

It also means knowing how to be enthusiastic about taking part with determination in the formidable development of the common international space of education, rich in exponential growth, nourished by exchanges and mobility.

Finally, it means being proud to affirm that education is the bearer of ideals: those of democratic resistance to unilateral obscurantism in the name of universal values affirming human rights and in particular the right to education.

Joining the FEDE network also means first and foremost wanting to think about a new approach for our younger generations, who are both worried about the geopolitical upheavals of the century and full of confidence in their own capacities, which we must help to develop and strengthen.

Above all, it is a mark of confidence in this Europe of innovation and imagination that all European citizens are calling for, a Europe proud of its youth, confident in its enterprises that create diversified wealth and more concerned with the opportunities of the future than with the sclerotic certainties of the past.

In a century of doubt and uncertainty, it is the strengthening of long-term networks that will affirm positive stability. The FEDE is the largest European network of private higher education and vocational training institutions. The FEDE brings together thousands of young people with ideas for progress. The FEDE is an exceptional alumni network. By joining the FEDE you offer your students this immense network which allows them to find a job, to blossom and to build a world of solidarity.
Joining the FEDE is to facilitate the blossoming of this Europe of a tomorrow so close to us that is being built today.

Joining the FEDE means taking part in this essential act of resistance to the forces of withdrawal. Joining the FEDE is finally helping to make people understand that the creation of wealth is the destiny of mankind.
