THE TOPICS

 

 The New European Bauhaus and Sustainable Cities for the Future 

The New European Bauhaus is a revitalization of the old German Bauhaus from the 1920s. The project was known for its combination of art and design with function and inclusivity. The Bauhaus focused on the democratization of architecture and providing a basic standard of living for everyone. The New Bauhaus is inspired by these values and wants to create an empowering and inclusive approach to sustainable and inclusive European cities. 

In this roundtable, we create a ‘virtual expo’ to give participants the chance to exchange ideas for inclusive cities and sustainable architecture solutions. We want to discover what ‘sustainable cities’ mean to MEPs, experts, and citizens, and how these ideas can be unified in future Europe. We will organize a constructive debate, where we look for possible solutions, foster ideas and create connections.

The FUTURE Of tourism in europe:
how to make travel more sustainable after the pandemic?

During the Covid19-pandemic, tourism in Europe has been drastically reduced. While the travel sector is one of the most affected sectors by the pandemic, it is also an important ally to create a more sustainable future for Europe. Especially transport has an important impact on climate change and other environmental and social issues. Now vaccinations have started, travel is expected to increase again in the coming months and years. 

During this roundtable, we want to create an international discussion between the travel industry, tourism experts, and politicians in order to discuss how the industry can re-start in a more sustainable way. We will focus on two topics: air and railroad travel, and the power of transformation through tourism of both people and places. The discussion will also include topics like overtourism and staycations. We want to create a constructive discussion on how to make tourism more sustainable and how the European Union can help in this regard. 

next generation eu:
innovation, digitalization and inclusion of women and youth in the European green deal

Next Generation EU is the recovery instrument proposed by the European Commission in 2020 to tackle the recovery of the European economy after the covid-19 pandemic. The €750 billion recovery instrument provided by the EU will be used to create a green and digital transition towards a prosperous and resilient European future. The proposal has been positively received as a strong statement for an innovative, competitive, green, and resilient future, but has also been criticized for not doing enough for the most affected and vulnerable social groups: women and youth. 

Thanks to efforts by members of the European Parliament, civil lobby groups, and the added link between Next Generation EU and the Gender Equality Strategy 2020-2025, there is now a requirement for the inclusion of women-focused recovery solutions in national recovery plans. Additionally, several measures have been put in place to increase Youth Employment Support, most notably €22 billion of the Next Generation EU budget should be spent on plans to increase youth employment. This requires member states to be ambitious and to include both women and youth in their national recovery plans. 


Next Generation EU and related instruments want to create an opportunity for increased involvement of women and youth in an innovative, digitalized, and green transition for Europe’s Future. In this event, we therefore want to hear from both politicians, and women and youth activists how to practically implement these goals on a regional, national and international scale.
