A warm welcome to the page of the

French Honorary Consulate

for Freiburg & Tübingen

Michael Mack


Tradition – Youth – Digitalisation – Future

As the French Honorary Consul for Freiburg & Tübingen, it will be my honour to contribute to the preservation and intensification of the Franco-German friendship. I believe in an open and tolerant Europe, which thinks sustainably and over multiple generations and in which the Franco-German relationship has a stabilising impact.

Dynamic change is shaping our time. In order to develop the future relationship of both countries, the following four key aspects have particular significance for me: Tradition, Youth, Digitalisation and Future. My personal commitment as Honorary Consul is characterised by these central areas of responsibility. Solid values based on tradition, youth and digitalisation – this IS the future. For France. For Germany. For Europe.

‘En avan les jeunes!’

Your Michael Mack

Preserve tradition
This region is my home and I feel closely connected to its people and traditions. My personal appreciation of both nations, my respect for their achievements, merits and innovations, as well as the responsibility to preserve those for future generations is a great driver for me. This is why I want to be a contact person for all age groups in order to bring the best of both nations together and to create great things through common cross-border projects.

Foster the Youth
Young people are our future. It is therefore my personal desire to inspire with distinct pioneering spirit and to give impulses that help increase the career opportunities of French and German adolescents. The responsibility for future generations motivates me to serve the Franco-German friendship.

Progress digitalisation
Using the potential of digital transformation and thereby creating new jobs and securing economic prosperity. For a sovereign, united and democratic Europe in which the people find a home, peace and a secure future.

Shape our future together
Supporting projects with economic, social or cultural potential.
My attention is primarily on fostering cross-border projects, innovations and initiatives which help to overcome the challenges of social and economic change and improve the future chances of generations to come. Actively shaping the future through pioneering innovations and supporting individual commitment as well as social and cultural projects.
