In 2021, the European Commission launched the New European Bauhaus (NEB) initiative. The NEB is an environmental, economic and cultural project, aiming to combine design, sustainability, accessibility, affordability and investment in order to help deliver the European Green Deal. The NEB is a growing movement, connecting people across fields in culture, education, science, architecture and the arts, with the aim to bridge global challenges with local solutions to achieve ambitious climate targets and support a broader transformation on the ground. This COST Connect event will bring together a wide variety of stakeholders active in these fields, ranging from COST Action researchers and innovators, to policy-makers and well-known experts. The event offers a multidisciplinary platform to discuss challenges and opportunities ahead, contributing to the debates on European level. On the first day of the event (9 June), a selected group of keynote speakers, experts and policy-makers will introduce the topic. On the second day of the event (10 June), an interactive discussion will take place with all participants involved. This COST Connect event is organised back-to-back with the Festival of the New European Bauhaus, organised by the European Commission and featuring great speakers, artistic performances, exhibitions, and networking opportunities.
