The New European Bauhaus, an interface between art, culture, social inclusion, science and technology, is intended to explore how future ways of life can be shaped. The European Union is hoping to use this interdisciplinary initiative to link its Green Deal to everyday reality. It seeks to develop impressions of a sustainable and intellectually and emotionally appealing future together. To achieve these objectives and ensure enriching experiences, the European initiative is relying on co-design. Creative minds are invited to generate ideas and hold conversations in order to design an innovative political framework. What will ultimately support them is a sustainable movement around new ways of thinking that create permanent communities and inclusive dialogues. We reported on the launch of the design stage on 25 January 2021. The initiative has now announced the first organisations and institutions from across the EU that will support the project as “partners of the New European Bauhaus”. The official partners include the German Design Council. They will act as inspiring idea providers and debate enablers throughout the initiative’s development, bring the effects to their local communities and function as a sounding board.

Furthermore, the participants of a high-level round table have been announced. They are intended to act as community messengers for the New European Bauhaus and provide inspiration for the project based on relevant expertise in their fields. The illustrious group of people includes architect and Pritzker Prize winner Shigeru Ban, artist Olafur Eliasson, activist Sheela Patel, urbanist Eszter Dávida, designer Luther Quenum, architect Bjarke Ingels and climate researcher Hans Joachim Schellnhuber.
