Goodbye Alan Faure

It is with great sorrow that we learned of the passing of Alain Faure, former EDF Executive Committee Member and former President of CFHE (Conseil Français des personnes Handicapées pour les questions Européennes).

“We send our deepest condolences to Alain’s family and friends and to the French disability movement. Alain was a very important part of the European disability movement. He will be greatly missed by us all. He was a role model in his commitment, his discretion and collaboration. I will personally miss him” – Yannis Vardakastanis, EDF President

Alan oversaw significant landmarks throughout his mandate including the adoption of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with disabilities and the adoption of the French law on the equal treatment for persons with disabilities.

He was also part of the board at UNAPEI and President of APEI Périguex.
