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.

Think/Do Évora

The Core Group of students organised an interdisciplinary student event called CrAFt Your Urban Experience.

It was held on the 9th of May 2023 in Évora, Portugal, at the School of the Arts of the University of Évora. CrAFt Your Urban Experience was a 1-day event exploring how to improve the city’s sensory experience and livability.

Connecting public space to broader questions around climate neutrality, inclusivity and cultural heritage, participants used the city of Évora as a playground and test case. Exchange and interdisciplinary collaboration were central, as the event involved over 40 participants, 6 mentors, and 5 local and regional stakeholders (including the Mayor of Évora).
