bay­ern design Part­ner of New Euro­pean Bauhaus

The Euro­pean future should be sus­tain­able, aes­thet­ic and inclu­sive. bay­ern design is now also con­tribut­ing to this as an offi­cial part­ner of the New Euro­pean Bauhaus, the Euro­pean Commission’s major ini­tia­tive for a sus­tain­able design of Europe.

With the New Euro­pean Bauhaus (NEB) ini­tia­tive launched in Jan­u­ary 2021, the EU Com­mis­sion has ini­ti­at­ed a mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary process that aims to fun­da­men­tal­ly change the way we live, work and consume.

The design of the ini­tia­tive is still in its ear­ly stages. It cur­rent­ly offers the states and regions of the Union a great oppor­tu­ni­ty to become proac­tive­ly involved in this devel­op­ment con­text, to active­ly shape it and to high­light their own strengths for the inno­v­a­tive shap­ing of a sus­tain­able eco­nom­ic and social order in the sense of the NEB values.

This applies in par­tic­u­lar to Bavaria with its dif­fer­en­ti­at­ed and net­worked research and edu­ca­tion land­scape, its high lev­el of exper­tise in the area of tech­nol­o­gy devel­op­ment, its role as a strong and inno­v­a­tive busi­ness loca­tion, a pio­neer of dig­i­ti­za­tion, a broad­ly estab­lished cul­tur­al and cre­ative indus­try, and a civ­il soci­ety that draws on tra­di­tion but is also forward-looking.

The great chal­lenge now is to fruit­ful­ly bring togeth­er these dif­fer­ent per­spec­tives and actors and to cre­ate a frame­work in which they can and want to work on com­mon visions and con­crete mea­sures for shap­ing a desir­able future.

bay­ern design is now tack­ling this chal­leng­ing task in coop­er­a­tion with oth­er part­ners by cre­at­ing a focal point that is to dri­ve the devel­op­ment and imple­men­ta­tion of a Bavar­i­an NEB strat­e­gy on top­ics relat­ed to the “big” future top­ics of the “Euro­pean House” — such as hous­ing, mobil­i­ty, dig­i­ti­za­tion, inte­gra­tion, nutri­tion — and posi­tion and pro­file the state with­in the Euro­pean initiative.

Those inter­est­ed in coop­er­a­tion and par­tic­i­pa­tion can now con­tact bay­ern design and thus become part of this great Euro­pean ini­tia­tive. Your con­tact per­son is Dr. Kil­ian Stein­er.
