Gist of the Commission document

According to the European Commission, the New European Bauhaus promotes a new sustainable lifestyle, accelerating the green transition in various sectors of our economy such as construction, furniture, fashion and in our societies as well as other areas of our daily life. The aim is to provide all citizens with access to goods that are circular and less carbon-intensive, that support the regeneration of nature and protect biodiversity. It brings a cultural and creative dimension to the European Green Deal to enhance sustainable innovation, technology and economy.

Such initiative endorses a multilevel approach to transformation – from global to local. It also includes support small-scale initiatives by individuals, neighbourhoods and local communities. Synergies among existing and planned EU policies or programmes should be intensified so that they can all contribute to a cultural project bringing together sustainability, inclusion and aesthetics in the places where people live and in the way they live. The European Commission will launch calls for proposals to select innovative pilot projects that are emblematic of the New European Bauhaus values, and will invite Member States to introduce the New European Bauhaus in their socio-economic and territorial development strategies.
