In this episode of "Green Deal – Big Deal?" we discuss what mud houses, 3D printers and beauty have to do with Europe’s journey to becoming a climate-neutral continent.
Specifically, we speak with Alina Ujupan, part of the team behind the European Commission’s New European Bauhaus Initiative, and Edouard Cabay, winner of a recent New European Bauhaus prize for… Spain’s first 3D printed building using earth.
The New European Bauhaus Initiative integrates science, technology, art, culture and community participation to propose a sustainable, beautiful, and inclusive future for the European Union. Our guests discuss with hosts Ewa Iwaszuk and Aaron Best the critical role of creativity and interdisciplinary collaboration in addressing environmental and social challenges, highlighting the initiative's impact on urban and community development, policy, and investment in sustainable projects.
The episode explores the significance of the New European Bauhaus in addressing environmental and social challenges, the role of innovative building techniques in sustainable architecture, and the importance of community involvement in the green transformation process. Our guests explain the power of creative thinking and interdisciplinary collaboration in tackling some of the most pressing challenges of our time and discuss how a blend of high-tech and low-tech solutions, coupled with a focus on local materials and community engagement, can lead to groundbreaking advancements in sustainable living and architecture.
