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.

Eight students join CrAFt

In January 2023, CrAFt selected eight students from universities in the CrAFt pilot cities Amsterdam, Bologna, Prague, and Trondheim to join an interdisciplinary working group. The students are:

  • Riccardo Bocchi, MA in Advanced Design – Service Design at the University of Bologna
  • Jan Exner, BA in Environmental Engineering at Czech Technical University in Prague
  • Alexey Kotegov, MA in Architecture and urbanism at Czech Technical University in Prague
  • Orlaith Mayet, BA in Fine arts at Gerrit Rietveld Academy
  • Mercy Oluokun, MA in Digital Design at Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences
  • Angela Subedi, MA in Urban Ecological Planning at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology
  • Federica de Vigili, MA Advanced Industrial Design at the University of Bologna
  • Galina Voitenko, MA in Sustainable Architecture at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology

The main responsibility of this group will be to collect documentation and inputs regarding the student activities in CrAFt. The group will also organise interdisciplinary student events and think/do tanks relating to key CrAFt themes. For instance, rethinking the climate action plan of the municipality of Trondheim, Norway from the perspective of the next generation of climate-neutral champions.

With the support of CrAFt experts, the group will define its own working structures and internal protocols for collaboration. Their ultimate goal will be to support CrAFt Cities to become more inclusive, beautiful, and, ultimately, climate-neutral.
