The New European Bauhaus (NEB) initiative calls on all Europeans to work together to imagine and build a sustainable and inclusive future that is equally appealing to our eyes, minds and souls.
An important component of the initiative is the New European Bauhaus Prize, which is currently being offered for the third time.
As in 2022, the prizes in 2023 will be awarded in four categories based on the thematic focal points of change that are key to the implementation of the New European Bauhaus:
— Reclaiming Nature
— Recovery of the sense of belonging
— Prioritizing places and people that need support the most
— The need for long-term life-cycle thinking in industrial ecosystems
2023 is the European Year of Competences. In this context, the 2023 awards will also have an additional competition section for education and learning initiatives.
All applications should exemplify the New European Bauhaus triangle of values — sustainability, inclusion, and aesthetics/quality of experience — while placing local community participation and vision at the heart of the process.
The winners in each category and competition area will receive monetary awards of 30,000 EUR (New European Bauhaus Champions and the New European Bauhaus Education Champions) and 15,000 EUR for (New European Bauhaus Rising Stars). In addition, each award winner will receive a communication package provided by the Commission.
Applications can be submitted from December 6, 2022 until January 31, 2023 at 19:00 CET.
About the initiative
By building bridges between different backgrounds, linking different disciplines, and encouraging participation at all levels, the New European Bauhaus inspires a movement to drive and steer change in
of our societies.
At the heart of this transformation are three inseparable values:
— Sustainability — from climate goals to circular economy and pollution-free to biodiversity.
— Inclusion — from valuing diversity to ensuring accessibility and affordability
— Aesthetics and quality of experience for people through design, positive sensations and cultural benefits
The European Commission launched the initiative in late 2020 to bring communities together and link the European Green Deal to our daily lives and living spaces.
