The New European Bauhaus initiative, the creative counterpart of the Green Deal, calls on all of us to imagine and build together a sustainable and inclusive future. 

That’s why, on the 10th of June, the members of the Bureau of European Design Associations (BEDA) and partners host the Building a Bright Future conference for the New European Bauhaus festival in MAD Brussels. We will discover how creativity and beauty engage in taking up more sustainable ways of building and living in Europe. Get inspired by what is happening in creative, cultural and other industries, including the design and policy sector. Let’s explore together what opportunities there are and what can move initiatives beyond boundaries.
