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.

With universities and schools of arts and design, we aim to create a bridge between science and practice to speed up the transformation towards climate-neutral cities across Europe.

To engage the next generation of professionals, we will promote the development of bachelor, master, and PhD assignments/theses in cooperation with participating universities and schools of arts and design. We will organise STEAM teams, a next-generation think/do tank, university-city agreements, internships, student assignments and similar activities to engage the individual students and their universities/schools in cities across Europe, in collaborative local governance activities facilitated by CrAFt.
