Shaping more beautiful, sustainable and inclusive forms of living together
Our shared journey started by getting to know each other and by understanding what this initiative means to each one of us.
We spent the first few months of this initiative inviting conversations and collecting contributions
about beautiful, sustainable and inclusive forms of living. The response has been impressive and it's now time to make sense of all we have collected and start translating it into policy and local action.
The European Commission will present the key principles that emerge from the listening phase and translate them into ideas for action into a policy document, a Commission Communication, to be presented in September.
In parallel, the initial group of Partners
is working on furthering the reach of the New European Bauhaus and on building an open community to articulate international cooperation with local action.

The New European Bauhaus
I want NextGenerationEU to kickstart a European renovation wave and make our Union a leader in the circular economy. But this is not just an environmental or economic project: it needs to be a new cultural project for Europe.
Ursula Von der Leyen
The New European Bauhaus is a creative and interdisciplinary initiative, convening a space of encounter to design future ways of living, situated at the crossroads between art, culture, social inclusion, science and technology. It brings the Green Deal to our living places and calls for a collective effort to imagine and build a future that is sustainable, inclusive and beautiful for our minds and for our souls.
Beautiful means inclusive, accessible spaces where the dialogue between diverse cultures, disciplines, genders and ages becomes an opportunity to imagine a better place for all. It also means a more inclusive economy, where wealth is distributed and spaces are affordable.
Beautiful means sustainable solutions that create a dialogue between our built environment and the planet's ecosytems. It means to realise regenerative approaches inspired by natural cycles that replenish resources and protect biodiversity.
Beautiful means enriching experiences that respond to needs beyond our material dimension, inspired by creativity, art and culture. It means appreciating diversity as an opportunity to learn from each other.
