The New European Bauhaus is a creative and interdisciplinary initiative that connects the European Green Deal to our living spaces and experiences.
The New European Bauhaus Prizes 2023 are open to applications from the EU Members States. For the first time they are also open to the Western Balkans. The Prizes award up to EUR 30,000 for exemplary initiatives linking sustainability, aesthetics and inclusiveness - the three complementary values of the New European Bauhaus.

What are the Prizes about?
The Prizes recognise and reward existing projects and young people’s concepts, which demonstrate that the sustainable solutions promoted by the European Green Deal can also be inclusive and beautiful, bringing high-quality experiences to people's everyday lives.
The Prizes are awarded in four thematic categories (for detailed descriptions, see the Guide to Applicants):
- Reconnecting with nature
- Regaining a sense of belonging
- Prioritising the places and people that need it the most
- The need for long-term, life-cycle thinking in the industrial ecosystem.
