New European Bauhaus

beautiful | sustainable | together

The New European Bauhaus (NEB) is an EU policy and funding initiative launched by the European Commission in 2021 that fosters sustainable solutions for transforming the built environment and lifestyles under the green transition.

It is looking for solutions that are not only sustainable, but also inclusive and beautiful, while respecting the diversity of places, traditions, and cultures in Europe and beyond.  

The New European Bauhaus works by : 

  • engaging people at a grassroots level, focusing on neighbourhoods  
  • providing tools and guidance   
  • offering tailor-made solutions for different communities  
  • incorporating the views of various stakeholders into the process of design and implementation  
  • prioritising people and social inclusion but also the economy to boost competitiveness and EU strategic autonomy

If the European Green Deal has a soul, then it is the New European Bauhaus which has led to an explosion of creativity across our Union.
