NEB ambition

The ultimate ambition of the New European Bauhaus is to achieve transformation. To do this, the NEB Compass has identified specific levels of ambition that outline the desired outcomes for each of the NEB values.

Action areas

These areas refer to the five key domains of intervention that CrAFt's New European Bauhaus Impact Model considers essential for guiding and evaluating complex urban initiatives.

Participation level

The participation level refers to the degree or extent to which individuals or groups are actively involved or engaged in a particular activity, project, or process. It assesses the depth of their involvement, contributions, and commitment, ranging from minimal or passive participation to active and dedicated participation.

NEB values

The New European Bauhaus (NEB) aims to promote the values of sustainability, aesthetics, and inclusion in the design and transformation of urban spaces. It emphasises the integration of environmental, social, and economic considerations to create harmonious and innovative living environments.

Implementation Stage

According to the Smart City Guidance Package, there are seven stages to plan and implement smart city projects. These stages propose a logical and coherent roadmap for city initiatives involving many stakeholders.

CrAFt Cities Kick-off takes place in Prague, 8-9 Nov 2022

Sixty cities and city clusters, as well as the six New European Bauhaus Lighthouses, gather together in Prague on the occasion of the Creative Bureaucracy Festival in Prague.

The goal of this event is to reach agreement on how good local collaborative governance models and creative bureaucracy can reinforce each other to boost the transition to climate-neutral, inclusive and beautiful cities, and to enable networking between cities and other partners.

The second day of the event, the 60 CrAFt cities will kick-off a peer-to-peer learning and co-creation process that will last until the end of CrAFt in 2025. On 9 November, CrAFt cities will share their experiences regarding the adoption of New European Bauhaus principles to accelerate the transition to climate neutrality.
