Quote from the Activity Leader

The New European Bauhaus is at the intersection of sustainability, inclusivity and aesthetics. We are building a community of innovators, entrepreneurs, experts and conscious citizens and supporting manufacturing activities, products, and services that have the three NEB values at the core.
