Press statement by President von der Leyen on the New European Bauhaus
Press statement given yesterday by President von der Leyen on the New European Bauhaus.
Tackling climate change and caring for our environment requires us to rethink the way we live. That is why we have made the European Green Deal our priority
We are taking the steps, one by one, to get there.
Today's strategy for a Renovation Wave will help us cut emissions and cut energy poverty.
It will bring economic, environmental and social benefits. But our European Green Deal is bigger.
It is a systemic change.
To achieve this, we need broad engagement, wide support and lots of innovation and creativity.
This is why we are today launching the New European Bauhaus.
The New European Bauhaus movement is intended to be a bridge between the world of science and technology and the world of art and culture.
It is about a new European Green Deal aesthetic combining good design with sustainability.
The New Bauhaus is about bringing the European Green Deal closer to people's minds and homes. And making tangible the comfort and attractiveness of sustainable living.
Good design can improve lives.
The New European Bauhaus will demonstrate that the necessary can also be beautiful.
The New European Bauhaus will be a think and experiment-space.
It will be:
- a forum for discussion
- an experimentation lab
- an accelerator for new solutions
- a hub for global networks and experts
- a meeting place for citizens interested in the topic.
