In 2021, WCCE became an official partner of the New European Bauhaus. The New European Bauhaus initiative connects the European Green Deal to our living spaces. It calls on all Europeans to imagine and build together a sustainable and inclusive future that is beautiful for our eyes, minds, and souls. As part of this project WCCE will develop with its network a series of online webinars with key experts that relate to the ambition of the New European Bauhaus. 

The New EU Bauhaus webinars programme will contribute to enhancing the capacities of the craft sector to contribute to building more resilient and sustainable societies and encourage the necessary adaptation of practices in the sector.

The important transformative role the European craft sector plays as a driver of sustainability and circular economy will be considered as award criteria within all selection procedures of CRAFTING awards, prizes, exhibitions among other activities.

Coming soon a webinar on Crafting Circularity: the Transformational Potential of the Craft Sector will give insights on the capacities of the craft sector in contributing toward building more resilient and sustainable societies and encouraging the necessary adoption of circular practices.
