(30 March 2022) – Today, the European Commission announced three new calls intended specifically for citizens, cities and towns to take the New European Bauhaus project deep into their communities.
Launched by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), the first and second calls focus on citizen engagement activities and co-creation of public spaces with citizens.
The EIT Community ‘Citizen Engagement Call’ invites citizens to identify relevant New European Bauhaus challenges for their cities and collaborate on co-designing solutions.
The projects will help citizens take up more sustainable habits, develop new products, services or solutions and help community members become agents of change. The call for ‘Co-Creation of Public Space’ will support projects that find innovative solutions in New European Bauhaus themes.
The third and last call, ‘Support to New European Bauhaus Local Initiatives’, provides technical assistance to small and medium-sized municipalities, which do not have the capacity or rich expertise needed to turn their NEB project ideas into reality.
