The EU New European Bauhaus was launched as a major interdisciplinary initiative and collective effort to imagine and to design future ways of living at the crossroads between art, culture, social inclusion, science and technology. It aspires to bring the Green Deal to life by facilitating the development of places that are simultaneously sustainable, inclusive, enriching and beautiful. The movement focuses on enabling a dialogue between diverse cultures, disciplines, genders and ages to learn from each other and to create a more inclusive economy, where wealth is distributed and spaces are affordable. Overriding everything is the idea of working within the planet’s ecosytems, focusing on regenerative approaches inspired by natural cycles that replenish resources and protect biodiversity.
In this session we hear from Vera Winthagen, Head of the New European Bauhaus Unit at the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre, who shares the steps that have been taken by this flagship European project so far.
