About the NEBC:

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.  

As stated by the EU Commission President Ms U. von der Leyen in her State of the Union speech, the Renovation Wave strategy « needs to be a cultural project for Europe ». By doing so, the NEBC considers that the strategy can be a game-changer in the transition to a more sustainable economy and society and 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.
