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.

CrAFting Cities Together in Bologna

An event to strengthen ties between neb communities and set up the grounds for a neb policy support alliance to make cities climate neutral, beautiful and inclusive.

CrAFting Cities Together in Bologna is an important milestone in reaching our goal of cities becoming climate neutral, beautiful and inclusive. We will strengthen ties between NEB communities and set up the grounds for a NEB Policy Support Alliance and CrAFt’s cookbook.

This event will bring together key stakeholders from the CrAFt project, the CrAFt Cities, NEB Lighthouse projects and other NEB / Cities Mission communities.

Throughout the three days, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn about the CrAFt Sandbox Cities Bologna, Amsterdam and Prague and their collaborative governance initiatives.
  • Visit several participatory spaces and projects in the city, such as DumBO, DRIVE 0 and the Ex Scalo Ravone area.
  • Co-create a new collaborative and NEB-inspired approach to policy processes and be part of the launch of the NEB Policy Support Alliance.
  • Launch of CrAFt’s Cookbook, containing dozens of recipes for collaborative governance.
  • Attend the Renovation Tour about the new European climate targets, the New European Bauhaus and other related EU, national and regional policies.
