New Year’s Message from the President

Dear Colleagues

A year full of contradictory moments of success and disappointment in the global context is coming to an end. The war in Ukraine, global warming, energy crisis, vanishing biodiversity require collective and individual efforts to bring out the best in many. The range of ideas produced in the design studios, seminars, conferences, workshops are impressive. We discuss, connect and act – with tenacious commitment.

Just to highlight some of the activities of EAAE from 2022:

It has been a very productive year. The follow-up projects and events are already in the pipeline, please mark these in your calendars:

My sincere thanks go to all our partner schools and organizations, to all the members of the Education and Research Academies and of the Conservation Network, to our secretariat at KU Leuven and to my colleagues in the EAAE council.

I wish you all peaceful holidays and a healthy and successful New Year.

Kind regards
Oya Atalay Franck, EAAE President
