Summary:

Information Guide concerning the New European Bauhaus initiative, launched by the European Commission to connect its European Green Deal to people's living spaces.

Further information:

The New European Bauhaus is a creative and interdisciplinary initiative, convening a space of encounter to recuperate and revisit sustainable practices from the past, empower the most inspiring practices of today, and design future ways of living. It is situated at the crossroads between art, culture, social inclusion, science and technology. It is a think-do tank. A design lab, accelerator and network at the same time.

This initiative unfolds in three phases - Design, Delivery and Dissemination. The phases are partly to operate in parallel, as individuals and communities interested in the first ideas are most likely to become partners to deliver and scale up the initiative. The New European Bauhaus is to engage early, to shape the concept in a large co-creation process. In parallel, the initiative needs to develop a framework of deliveries. It was first announced during the 2020 State of the Union address and formally launched by the European Commission on 14 October 2020, alongside its Communication on a Renovation Wave for Europe. The design phase was kickstarted on 18 January 2021.
