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.
