05 November 2021 | From UNICA - From partners
SAVES 2 continues the efforts to encourage environmentally responsible behavior! Following an invitation by the European Commission, the findings of the Horizon 2020 SAVES 2 project on behavior change for a sustainable and inclusive world, will be presented at the conference “LIFE in the New European Bauhaus” (physical and online), Brussels, 15 – 17 November.
Leveraging on the Green Deal, the “New European Bauhaus” is a creative and interdisciplinary initiative, convening a space of encounter to design future ways of living, situated at the crossroads between art, culture, social inclusion, science and technology. The conference “LIFE in the New European Bauhaus” brings together representatives from projects financed through the LIFE and Horizon 2020 programmes working on different aspects of the transformation necessary for a carbon-neutral 2050. Through a matchmaking meeting approach, the conference aims to encourage networking that will lead to new partnerships.
