New European Bauhaus capacity building programme for the reconstruction of Ukraine

The European Commission is launching the New European Bauhaus capacity building programme for the reconstruction of Ukraine. The event will take place on 16 March 2023 at 15:00 CET, and it will be held online. This high-level event of two hours will set the political framing of the capacity building and give an overview of the upcoming three modules.

This programme that was announced by Commission President Ursula von der Leyen in Kyiv in February will provide both inspiration and practical help for municipalities involved in the reconstruction and rebuilding of Ukraine and promote the values of the New European Bauhaus, sustainability, aesthetics and inclusion, as a guiding principle for the reconstruction.

The programme will consist of a series of online webinars, starting in April. All modules are based on a thorough assessment of the needs of Ukrainian municipalities conducted in autumn 2022. The programme is organised by and with the Ukrainian partners Ro3kvit, ReThink, Covenant of Mayors East and the Architects’ Council of Europe.

This launch event is open to all stakeholders, however the registration is needed.

At the launch event, there will be a long list of high-level speakers and experts including the President of the European Commission, several Commissioners, the Minister for reconstruction of Ukraine, the Mayor of Lyon and experts from the Ukrainian NGOs Ro3kvit and ReThink, among others. Here you can find the detailed agenda.

The event will be held both in English and Ukrainian, with simultaneous translations.
