About this event

The project, Youth 4 Bauhaus, refers to the green initiative of the European Commission – New European Bauhaus (NEB), launched in October 2020. Inspired by creativity, art, and culture, this initiative aims to bring the European Green Deal to our living places and common lives.

It is a collective effort to imagine and build a sustainable, inclusive, and “beautiful future”, in which a space for designing future ways of living is created, emphasizing the need for crossing arts, culture, social inclusion, science, and technology.

Citizens are one of the most important stakeholders in this cross-sectoral initiative. Thus, they need to be better informed about various topics ranging from principles of sustainable development, architecture, urbanism, business, sociology, ecology, and culture. Young people are an important category in this case. They represent the future, and innovative approaches will bring them closer to how to get involved in changing public spaces.

Project partners and students participating from: KOŠICE (Creative Industry Košice), BRAGA (Teatro Circo de Braga), GHENT (CollectiveUP), BUCHAREST (GEYC Association)
