Europe is to become cli­mate-neu­tral by 2050. To achieve this, the EU Com­mis­sion under its Pres­i­dent Ursu­la von der Leyen has launched the Euro­pean Green Deal. Close­ly linked to this is the “New Euro­pean Bauhaus / Neues Europäis­ches Bauhaus” ini­tia­tive. It aims to estab­lish a link between the Euro­pean Green Deal and the liv­ing spaces and real­i­ties of peo­ple in Europe. All Euro­peans are invit­ed to devel­op and real­ize togeth­er ideas of a sus­tain­able and inclu­sive, aes­thet­i­cal­ly, intel­lec­tu­al­ly and emo­tion­al­ly appeal­ing future. The first New Euro­pean Bauhaus Con­fer­ence will take place on April 22 and 23.

Par­tic­i­pants in the two-day con­fer­ence pro­gram include Com­mis­sion Pres­i­dent Ursu­la von der Leyen, archi­tect Bjarke Ingels, Francesca Bria (econ­o­mist and social sci­en­tist and UN advi­sor), Hans Joachim Schellnhu­ber (founder and long-time direc­tor of the Pots­dam Insti­tute for Cli­mate Impact Research), Dan­ish artist Ola­fur Elias­son, Päivi Tahkokalli (pres­i­dent of the Bureau of Euro­pean Design Asso­ci­a­tions BEDA) and oth­er inspir­ing peo­ple from var­i­ous fields.
