Participate in the eLabHauSE wiki Platform and co-design with us the Social Economy Laboratories for the New Bauhaus in European Rural Communities and contribute to the collection of good practices based on the New European Bauhaus (NEB)!
With your participation we will elaborate a Manifesto and an Action Plan that will shape the co-designed laboratories, to be implemented in the future in the European Rural Communities.
Help us promote rural development to create a more beautiful, sustainable and inclusive way of life.
The local social economy laboratories #
The local social economy laboratories (LabHauSE) will be the results of the analysis, collection and mapping of best practices, a cooperative task that it is being carried out in this website by all of us. These Creative, Collective and Participatory Innovation Labs will establish a network between European rural areas, where information, knowledge and experiences can be exchanged, and innovative and creative entrepreneurial initiatives are promoted, based on the opportunities offered by the New European Bauhaus. Their objective is to improve competitiveness and boost social economy enterprises in rural areas, with a cooperative approach, where civil society and people of all ages and in all their diversity are involved, especially aiming at including women and disadvantaged groups. LabHauSEs are founded in the collaborative spirit, bringing together different disciplines to reach out to society, industry and the world of politics in order to connect people and find new forms of collective creation, seeking the collective intelligence of the local community.
Its results will boost collective intelligence and social innovation and facilitate the ecological, digital and socio-demographic transformation of European rural communities, as well as innovative entrepreneurial business, all within the frame of the New European Bauhaus.
What’s new in the European Bauhaus? #
100 years after the Bauhaus, a movement that radically changed German art, design, architecture and beyond, the European Commission has launched a new European Bauhaus to rethink our lifestyles and shape future ways of living that respond to today’s broader challenges. Key points of the project are accessibility, inclusion and sustainability.
Inspired by the principles of Gropius’ Bauhaus, the new European Bauhaus is a new environmental, economic and cultural project aimed at the countries of the European Union, which involves companies and civil society in “a wave of restructuring throughout Europe and makes the Union leader of the circular economy” (Ursula von der Leyen).
The New European Bauhaus was born from the desire to make the Green Deal a cultural experience, tangible and shared by European citizens with the aim of building a new future together. The COVID19 crisis has shown how everything is interconnected and it is no longer possible to think about society, the economy and countries in watertight compartments.
The New European Bauhaus aims to promote the exchange of knowledge between people across Europe through an interdisciplinary project. Given the climatic challenge we face, the new European Bauhaus leverages human creativity to find life solutions that incorporate sustainability and circularity, quality of experience and aesthetics, inclusion and economic accessibility.
