Abstract

To help repair the economic and social damage brought by the Covid-19 pandemic, and kick-start European recovery - without compromising on the principles and objectives of the European Green Deal - in May 2020 EU Member States agreed to an 850 euro billion “Next Generation EU Recovery Plan” (European Council, 2020). As part of the plan, the “New European Bauhaus Initiative”' (NEB) was launched as a project to translate the European Green Deal into a tangible, positive experience in which all Europeans can participate and progress together (European Commission, 2021). This policy paper aims at discussing how the NEB objectives and operating methods represent an opportunity to seize for accelerate the transformation of European food systems.
