New European Bauhaus: Achieving aesthetics, sustainability and inclusiveness at local level - 12WS21617

Tuesday, October 12, 2021 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM · 1 hr. 30 min. (CET)
Citizens Engagement


The New European Bauhaus (NEB) reflects an ambition that is shared by many practitioners, citizens and local decision-makers: making our habitat more sustainable, inclusive and beautiful – in short, designing and building quality places.

In recent years, many institutional documents at international and European levels have set objectives and defined principles to achieve this ambition (UN Sustainable Development Goals, Davos Declaration, the Mannheim Message, etc.). This workshop will bring together local decision-makers, architects and representatives from arts schools to discuss how this ambition and these principles can be translated into tangible initiatives, projects and processes at local level.

Key areas of the New European Bauhaus will be explored, namely: 1) the intertwined drivers of sustainability, aesthetics and inclusiveness; 2) the difficulty in balancing these often conflicting goals with limited resources, 3) the relationships between the world of science and technology and the world of art and culture and 4) the role of local governments.

We are confident that this workshop will contribute to raising cities’ and regions’ awareness on the challenges inherent to the New European Bauhaus initiative, offer inspiration, and help to highlight some good practices.
