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.

How to Engage a Broader Range of Stakeholders

Join us for an online Mutual Learning Exercise on How to Engage a Broader Range of Stakeholders, scheduled for Tuesday, 28 May 2024, from 10:00 to 12:00.

The event will kick off with presentations discussing stakeholder engagement at Sladovna—a living cultural center in Písek, Czech Republic—as well as a broader perspective on cooperation with stakeholders by the Democratic Society, a network of people working to create a democracy that works for the 21st century.

Following the presentations, participants will engage in group discussions focused on the following topics:

  • Determining the ideal timing to involve stakeholders
  • Engaging stakeholders beyond the usual groups
  • Sustaining stakeholder engagement over time.

The event is open for anybody interested in the topic whether you’re a seasoned practitioner or a curious mind, your perspective matters! Join us and contribute your ideas and experiences to enrich our collective understanding.
