In her opening keynote address for DLD All Stars, Ursula von der Leyen explains the EU’s New European Bauhaus initiative and how it will help the European economy to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic. “We need projects that open a perspective for the future, that make us dream, that touch our emotions and stimulate creativity”, the President of the EU Commision said. “And this is what the new European Bauhaus is about. It is also a project for recovery.”
Ursula von der Leyen is the first woman to become President of the European Commission. A longtime member of Germany’s CDU, Ms. von der Leyen served in the cabinet of Angela Merkel before moving to Brussels in 2019 to lead the EU Commission.
