New European Bauhaus: launch of capacity-building program to start Ukraine’s reconstruction
European Commission is launching the New European Bauhaus capacity-building program for the reconstruction of Ukraine in partnership with Ukrainian organizations.
The capacity-building initiative aims to provide both inspiration and practical help for municipalities involved in the reconstruction and rebuilding of Ukraine. The program is organized by and with Ukrainian partners — Ro3kvit, ReThink, Covenant of Mayors East, and the Architects’ Council of Europe.
“We will reconstruct Ukraine. We have to, and we will do that. The reconstruction owned by Ukraine, should be done in the spirit of the New European Bauhaus. There are urban planners, architects, engineers fully on board, and the NEB concept will inspire them. Our vision is to turn the destruction of war into opportunities to build a beautiful and healthy future for Ukraine,” European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen stressed.
