In case anyone missed it, the EU has launched a new series of prizes for its New European Bauhaus initiative. Each prize is worth up to €30,000 and covers one of 10 categories, a couple of which could encapsulate repair and reuse activities.
For the main strand, they are looking for completed or existing projects that “illustrate how the triangle of sustainability, aesthetics and inclusion has already been translated in our territories, our communities and in our practices, or that pave the way to the future.”
There is also a second strand for people aged 30 or less for ideas or concepts that have yet to be developed.
The New European Bauhaus has the ambition to make the Green Deal a cultural, human-centred and positive, tangible experience. Everyone should be able to feel, see and experience the green and digital transformation and the way it enhances our quality of life. It is about bridging the global challenges with the local solutions to achieve our climate targets and support a broader transformation perspective.
The Prizes will recognize and celebrate existing achievements and support the younger generation to further develop emerging concepts and ideas. They will give visibility to project examples and concepts/ideas that illustrate how the triangle of sustainability, aesthetics and inclusion has already been translated in our territories, our communities and in our practices, or that pave the way to the future.
The deadline for applications is 31 May 2021.
Is anyone thinking of going for it?
