Europa Nostra and the European Movement International, in collaboration with the city of Brussels, the European Investment Bank Institute and the European Commission, organised the event “Fostering Peace & Solidarity, Beauty & Sustainability as core values of the New European Bauhaus“ on Friday 10 June from 16:00 to 20:45 in the Gothic Room of the Brussels Town Hall, located on the emblematic Grand-Place, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Agenda 16:00 – 18:00 Part I – European Cultural Heritage Agora for the New European Bauhaus An engaging debate on the key role of cultural heritage – tangible and intangible – in shaping more sustainable and cohesive societies with due understanding and respect for the “spirit of the place” of their living environment, be it urban or rural. This debat gathered experts and high-level representatives from civil society and the EU Institutions to exchange on two timely topics: the vital contribution of cultural heritage to Europe’s green transformation and beauty as a public good; and the role of cultural heritage to rediscover the sense of a place and strengthen the sense of belonging to a wider European community.
