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 Tank Manchester

The second Core Group of students organised an interdisciplinary student Think/Do tank called UniCity 2030.

It was held on the 18th of October 2023 in Manchester, United Kingdom, at Manchester Metropolitan University. It was a 1-day event exploring how to make cities livable and inclusive for everyone.

The Think/Do Tank aimed to be a platform for student voices, ideas, and creativity. It offered Manchester Metropolitan University students the chance to be part of a student-led experience and experiment in practising interdisciplinary collaboration.
