The New European Bauhaus has announced an initiative to challenge the creative minds. The open call encourages representatives from the cultural and artistic sector, to address our climate changes in a creative manner; and, in collaboration with other sectors’ representatives.
The Idea Behind the Open Call
The topic of this invitation, is to address to the climatic and environmental threats, by developing new, inventive strategies, as a response. The Bauhaus movement has influenced the idea, which its approach lies on aesthetics and practicality. It coincides with the European Commission’s objective, which were announced in the European Green Deal and the Renovation Wave Strategy.
The idea lies on an interdisciplinary planned action, to face the climatic emergency. The interdisciplinary action means to combine the scientific, technological, artistic and cultural aspects into sustainable, inclusive solutions. Thus, through a cross-sectoral discourse, the suggestions and ideas that will be expressed, will form the context of an innovative policy.
In a nutshell, the aim is to develop a common approach focusing on how cities are designed and, the incorporation of circular economy.
