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.
