The possible futures are innumerable. Only one of them will turn out to be reality. It is our task and duty to setting the coordinates, heading for the most beautiful future we can imagine.
These days, when a child is naming our industrial economy a naked king and calls for drastic change, the European society arrives at the doorstep to the postindustrial phase. Seeing this, the European Commission initiated the “New European Bauhaus” to take off and to outline the desirable Utopias for Mankind. To make them tangible, valuable and lovable.
As a part of the “New European Bauhaus”, it is the task of all designers, design thinkers and design doers, to find the path to the most desirable future and setting up the signposts for the society to follow.
Imagine, which future do you want?
In the spirit of the initiative “The New European Bauhaus”, we use our know-how to promote creativity and a sustainable way of life desirable and accessible to all. We invite everyone to participate in workshops, open discussions and expert talks.
We talk with interested parties, as well as individuals about ideas for the future, make them appear designable and support the creative self-efficacy of the participants:
beautiful | sustainable | together
