The main need NEBULA aims to address is the renewal and regeneration of urban/rural areas leveraging on the most important resources communities have: young people's attitudes and ideas. In this framework, social, artistic and environmental activities are a fundamental starting point in regeneration processes as the launch of the NEB initiative demonstrates, affecting the development of collective identity and the sense of belonging to a community, allowing social inclusion, transmitting educational values, promoting social exchanges and contributing to territorial economic development.
The starting point of this project is based on the ideas promoted by the New European Bauhaus (NEB) that aims to redesign Europe, led by 3 concepts that will reshape and give new life to the environment we live in: accessibility, inclusion and sustainability. This movement has to be seen as a current of interdisciplinary subjects, connected by creativity, that will develop a new conception of meeting space, where different practices of sustainability and social inclusion are displayed.
The NEB aims at being the practical conversion of the Green Deal, making cities and rural peripheries something to be lived and enjoyed also from a cultural and “experiential” point of view. Arriving to a solution to these issues requires a multidisciplinary approach. We think that these solutions can be reached tapping into young people’s creativity provided that they own the right set of skills and with the right sources of inspiration.
