Making the New European Bauhaus a great success: Nature-based solutions for citizens, society and our climate
The European Commission’s New European Bauhaus calls for a creative, interdisciplinary, novel movement embedded in the society to imagine together a sustainable future and to engage on a transformative path towards affordable and beautiful living spaces in the urban and rural environment.
A key step is the transformation of the building sector into a circular model that can also counteract the escalating climate crisis. Welcoming this initiative, the European wood-based sector aims to create an open platform Wood4Bauhaus that brings together its manifold stakeholders.
Wood is an extremely versatile material, and a circular material par excellence. Long-life products using wood can store carbon for decades or even centuries in buildings and living spaces. The conference aims to raise awareness for the transformative power of the Circular Economy, put a spotlight on the versatility of innovative wood-based products and building systems, and propose dedicated co-creation partnerships with the wood sector for the New European Bauhaus.
