The General Assembly will take place in one of Munich‘s most impressive buildings – the BWM-Welt. Built for the permanent exhibition of the company‘s current car models the BMW-Welt does not only have a remarkable interior atmosphere but also imprints on one‘s memory for its unique futuristic architecture.
The Court Church of All Saints, hosting us for the Opening Ceremony, was erected in the early 19th century by the Bavarian King Ludwig I. in byzantine style. It is placed in the centre of Munich as part of the complex which forms the Munich Residenz, Germany‘s largest inner-city palace.
One of the session‘s highlights, the EuroConcert, will be held in one of Germany’s most famous concert halls, the Gasteig. Throughout the year lots of events, ranging from classical concerts and drama to dance shows or even ukulele orchestra concerts, take place on the stages of the Gasteig. The EuroConcert will be in the Carl-Orff hall, which is mainly used for staging drama.
The RessourceVillage, gathering Experts from industry, academia, NGO’s and politics to talk with the delegates about the session topics, will take place in the Lehel Carré. This new congress center in contrast to the very traditional suburb „Lehel“ it is located in will provide the perfect environment for lively, controversial and highly interesting discussions.
Munich Park Youth Hostel
The Delegates will be accommodated in the Munich Park Youth Hostel for the entire session. The youth hostel is located in the southern suburb of Thalkirchen, within walking distance of Munich‘s river the Isar, and is surrounded by public parks and greenery. The hostel itself was recently redesigned and modernised and now features lots of opportunity to relax and meet.
Technische Universität München
Committee Work will take place on the campus of the Technical University of Munich. Technische Universität München (TUM) is one of Europe’s top universities. It is committed to excellence in research and teaching, interdisciplinary education and the active promotion of promising young scientists. The university also forges strong links with companies and scientific institutions across the world. TUM was one of the first universities in Germany to be named a University of Excellence and should inspire delegates to tackle Europe‘s most pressing issues in creative ways, while thinking outside the box.
