Wood4Bauhaus goes global 🌎: The Alliance proudly announces that Prof. Andreja Kutnar, Director of the InnoRenew CoE, will give a keynote address at the Pontifical Academy of Science at the Vatican during the Bauhaus Earth conference “Reconstructing the Future for People and Planet” on Thursday 9 June 2022.
The building sector needs a revolution: it must drive down its excessive material use and harmful carbon emissions escalating climate change. Wood and other nature-based materials sequester and store carbon in multiple products, which can be reused, remanufactured and recycled for decades and last for centuries. They represent a tremendous lever for the green transformation and therefore need to be upscaled fast in the construction and renovation markets. Innovation and recovery of traditional woodworking knowledge will lead this revolution.
The event lines up an illustrious group of speakers from all over the world such as distinguished scientists, renowned architects and influential policy-makers, notably EC President Ursula von der Leyen, Prof. John Schellnhuber, Diébédo Francis Kéré, Lesley Lokko, Shigeru Ban Architects, among others.
