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.

Exploring New Perspectives on City Planning

Join us for this workshop on new perspectives of urban planning. You will discover three innovative tools which promote New European Bauhaus (NEB) values in urban development processes. Those are:

  • The NEB Impact Model focuses on five key areas (governance, economic performance, socio- cultural performance, environmental performance, healthy living) and corresponding indicators to facilitate evaluation of co-benefits during planning projects in the urban context.
  • The Utrecht Barcode gives invaluable information about proportion of different land uses, facilities and services in given urban project of large scale to keep it multifunctional and dense. The model comprises living, working, social facilities, sports, energy, water and infrastructure. The Barcode is made up of standards for each function, based on existing policies, supplemented with trends and developments. It was applied in development of the city of Utrecht.
  • The Espoo Co-creation Toolkit focuses on the decision-making process and ways how to engage relevant stakeholders in the given infrastructural project. It is based on concrete practices in Espoo, the suburban area of Helsinki, and focuses primarily on energetics and mobility.

During this session, we will explore the tools and their application through theory and practise. Besides the introductory talks by authors/users of the tools, the participants will be able to try to use them themselves. The workshop will help you view city planning from different perspectives, ensuring no crucial steps are overlooked and all relevant stakeholders participate. There will be also time for a discussion and sharing of experiences. The workshop will be held in English and Czech.
