New European Bauhaus Lab launch & Call for Friends
The launch of the ‘NEB LAB' starts with a call for Friends of the New European Bauhaus to involve companies and public actors such as regions, villages and cities.
On Thursday 7th April, the Commission launched the NEB LAB, a ‘think and do' tank to make the New European Bauhaus a reality through concrete and tangible projects. By connecting the initiative's growing community and sharing ideas, it will bring about beautiful, sustainable, and inclusive changes on the ground.
The launch of the ‘NEB LAB' starts with a call for Friends of the New European Bauhaus to involve companies and public actors such as regions, villages and cities, more directly in the NEB.
The Call for Friends of the New European Bauhaus is open to entities that pledge their commitment to the New European Bauhaus values of sustainability, aesthetics, and inclusion. The Friends will join an existing community of more than 450 official partners, High-Level Round Table members, Contact Points of the national governments, and winners and finalists of the New European Bauhaus prizes.
Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, Mariya Gabriel, said:
'The New European Bauhaus is a growing movement connecting people across fields like culture, education, the arts, science, and architecture to share innovative ideas and embark on beautiful, sustainable, and inclusive projects to improve our daily lives. The NEB Lab provides a central meeting place for yet more of those connections to happen. It will help build the groundwork for more real changes on the ground.'
NEB LAB projects that are up and running include:
Three community-led NEB Lab projects are also underway:
- New European Bauhaus goes South connects six south European counties which join forces to reflect about and improve education through architecture.
- Nordic carbon neutral Bauhaus is an open forum to discuss how architecture, design and art can help achieve a carbon neutral building and living environment in an inclusive manner.
- New European Bauhaus of the mountains seeks to improve the quality of the built environment, and citizens' quality of life, in rural and mountain areas.
