The New European Bauhaus

The New European Bauhaus is about improving our daily lives, focusing on better living together in more beautiful, sustainable and inclusive places. It is about bridging global challenges with local solutions to achieve our climate targets and support a broader transformation on the ground.

A triangle of three inseparable values guides the New European Bauhaus:

  • sustainability, from climate goals, to circularity, zero pollution, and biodiversity, 
  • aesthetics, quality of experience and style, beyond functionality, 
  • inclusion, valorising diversity, equality for all, accessibility and affordability.
