A European project to rethink life in coastal cities has been launched with the Gulbenkian Foundation as one of its partners.
16 may 2023

Today, the Gulbenkian Foundation hosted a discussion on ecological awareness and the way forward to adapt cities for a sustainable, inclusive and beautiful future. This meeting is part of the launch of the Bauhaus of the Sea Sails initiative, which aims to be a point of intersection for scientists, artists, architects and local communities to design ways of life integrating sustainability, art, culture, social inclusion, science and technology.

Bauhaus of the Sea Sails is one of six projects selected as so-called “lighthouse projects,” funded by the Horizon Europe Programme under the New European Bauhaus. It is the only project led by Portugal. Besides Lisbon and Oeiras, other European cities involved include Rotterdam, Venice, Hamburg, Malmo and Genoa. With the purpose of presenting and discussing approaches for coastal cities, the programme brings the Ecological Pact closer to citizens and their experiences, mobilising Europeans to imagine and build a more sustainable, inclusive and aesthetic future.

Eighteen organisations from the six selected countries will work together over three years to find solutions for climate neutrality, with a special focus on coastal cities as an interface for healthy seas, oceans and water bodies, helping point the way forward for further New European Bauhaus actions.

Coordinated by Lisbon from IST, the “Bauhaus of the Sea Sails” has the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and the Lisbon and Oeiras Municipal Councils as national partners.
