With the "EU Green Deal", the European Union has set itself the goal of making Europe climate-neutral by 2050. By 2030, 55 percent of emissions are already to be reduced to 1990 levels. The Commission wants to promote sustainable ideas and is awarding prizes worth a total of 450,000 euros as part of its "New European Bauhaus" initiative.
New European Bauhaus
The European Commission's New European Bauhaus (NEB) initiative is about our daily coexistence manifested in a more beautiful, sustainable and inclusive designed environment, as well as the implementation of the European Green Deal. Currently, the European Commission's strategy is in the co-design phase (NEBC), the first phase to collect ideas focused on design and engagement. More information on the NEB initiatives at:
