EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen is planning a "new European Bauhaus movement" for urban change in Europe.

“The goal is to have cities that are completely climate-neutral and more livable”, writes von der Leyen in a guest article for the “Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung”. So that Europe can become “the first climate-neutral continent” by 2050, architects, artists and engineers should work together and combine sustainability with design.

Specifically, the renovation quota should at least double in the next ten years, with the aim of increasing the quality of life and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In the next two years, five European Bauhaus projects will initially emerge in different countries of the Union, as the Commission President outlined in her contribution. There you will find practical answers to the question of how modern life could look in harmony with nature.
