New European Bauhaus – Call for partnerships
Call for partnerships
The New European Bauhaus initiative is based on co-design. It invites creative minds to participate, curate conversations and generate ideas to shape an innovative policy framework. Ultimately, it supports a sustainable movement around new ways of thinking that create lasting communities and inclusive, ongoing dialogues.
To achieve this, the initiative needs the support of organisations across the EU that can act as "Partners of the New European Bauhaus". They will act as promoters, community managers, sounding boards and key interlocutors throughout the development of the initiative.
The "Partners of the New European Bauhaus" are organisations that act as inspiring promoters of the debates and of the ideas that will be developed through the movement. They should have a large outreach and act as trusted influencers.
Their core activities are relevant to one or more dimensions of the New European Bauhaus, are in line with the core values of the European Union of human rights, - freedom, democracy, equality and rule of law- , and support the political priorities of the von der Leyen Commission.
They help the New European Bauhaus to:
- support the needed transformation of our societies towards living together in more sustainable, inclusive and enjoyable urban and rural environments;
- recognise that people should co-create their living spaces and debate behaviours and life styles;
- acknowledge that engaging in co-creation processes, respecting the diversity of perspectives and expertise, is necessary to generate inclusive ideas and affordable quality solutions.
European networks and umbrella organisations at EU level are natural candidates. National and sub-national organisations (for instance, national networks or foundations), with significant outreach capacity, statutory purpose, experience and scope could also be ideal Partners.
What will Partners receive in return?
The Partners will be listed on a dedicated page on the New European Bauhaus website, together with their declaration of interest and commitment to the initiative. Wherever relevant, links will point the audience to New European Bauhaus related activities on the Partners’ websites. In the same way, their relevant activities will be listed on the New European Bauhaus website and on other media used for the New European Bauhaus communication.
Partners will be a key member of the New European Bauhaus community. The Commission will carry out a series of exchanges with the Partners and will facilitate interactions among them in various forms, also with a view to discuss and test developments of the initiative.
