European Bauhaus: Activate

Ecological transformation must not be an empty phrase but a way to improve everyday life. The New European Bauhaus is a creative initiative which seeks tangible solutions to achieve the goals of the European Green Deal. The morning's forum will present innovations in architecture, education and urban development from the Czech Republic and Europe. Speakers at the forum will include Thomas Bourdaud from Plateau Urbain in France, Sven Buch from the urban development company in Aalborg and Petr Škvařil, a member of the expert panel which prepared the initiative. The event also includes an Idea Fair and two presentation panels showing the possibilities of activating Prague's real estate. The event is held in cooperation with the Prague Innovation Institute, Operátor ICT, Creative Prague and UCEEB Czech Technical University.
