Metrolab is proud to announce that we have been selected as one of the 199 official partners of the #NewEuropeanBauhaus Initiative across the whole European Union. In particular, Metrolab is one of 9 regional and local organisations that have been selected as partners.
The New European Bauhaus is a think-do tank: a design lab, accelerator and network at the same time. A creative and interdisciplinary movement, convening a space of encounter to recuperate and revisit sustainable practices from, empower the most inspiring practices of today, and design future ways of living, at the crossroads between art, culture and science. The New European Bauhaus wants to build a sustainable future through creativity, innovation and imagination. To enable experimental places and spaces for us to reimagine how to live better together after the pandemic.
The New European Bauhaus is a crossroads project. It connects innovation, creativity and design to citizen’s quality of life in towns and localities. It bridges, connect and blend the green and digital transformations.
The partners gather organisations all over Europe that support the values of the initiative and contribute to the discussion about the next steps closely with the European Commission. Our contribution to the debate will be a recall of the importance of thinking on a smaller scale to strengthen the embeddedness of projects in their context.
It has been great to digitally meet with many of our colleagues and to see that we are many striving for a more sustainable and inclusive development in cities. We are convinced that this dialogue will be fruitful and we will do our best to make our commitment concrete. We look forward to the upcoming discussions!
