New European Bauhaus Collective (NEBC) official partner of the EC New European Bauhaus Initiative!
The New European Bauhaus Collective (NEBC) is a grouping of several pan-European organisations representing architects, spatial planners, landscape architects, interior architects, engineers, designers, artists, educators and researchers of the built environment, and more broadly the cultural and creative sectors.
Members and supporters of the NEB Collective have joined forces to collectively support the development and implementation of the New European Bauhaus initiative that they enthusiastically welcome.
With this initiative, the NEB Collective considers that the European Commission complements the economic, social and environmental measures of the Renovation Wave strategy with an essential cultural dimension. This can be a game-changer in the transition to a more sustainable economy and society and will bring the Green Deal closer to
citizens for their well-being. It opens the door to a more holistic approach to our built environment, seeking to enhance, at the same time, economic, social, environmental and cultural values, as well as access to culture and cultural participation.
The NEB Collective released in November 2020 a Statement “Making the Renovation Wave a cultural project” to express initial views on the New European Bauhaus and offer its support to the Commission.
