EU scribe harps on the benefits of ‘green buildings’

Green buildings have been described as catalysts for cutting greenhouse emissions and eradicate energy poverty.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, said this an a written op-ed for Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitun – marking the launch of the New European Bauhaus.

Ursula said the New European Bauhaus movement is intended to be a bridge between the world of science and technology and the world of art and culture.

“The New Bauhaus is about bringing the European Green Deal closer to people’s minds and homes. And making tangible the comfort and attractiveness of sustainable living. Good design can improve lives. The New European Bauhaus will demonstrate that the necessary can also be beautiful.”

Ursula von der Leyen, President of European Commission

Ursula noted that the European Bauhaus’ vocation is to grow and reach out beyond Europe’s borders.

If Europe is to lead the way in the twin green and digital transition, we should engage in cultural debates as well. The New European Bauhaus is part of our broader vision: Building the world of tomorrow for a tomorrow that is greener, more beautiful and humane.

Ursula von der Leyen, President of European Commission

The EU last week announced last week that it would focus on constructing eco-friendly buildings as part of its green deal to usher in a carbon emissions-free continent in 2050.
