Throughout the festival’s two days, you can learn about the sustainable and inclusive usage of urban spaces, circular economy, the re-thinking of Danube’s bank, as well as developing collaborative neighbourhoods and districts. On Saturday, we’re holding a real placemaking event, located on the closed quay, and the viaduct under tramline 2, unused for years.

Placemaking is philosophy and practice at the same time. It’s a process based on cooperation, aimed to create public spaces that people love, and that local communities can connect with. Though in Hungary, it’s still a less commonly used urban planning practice, more and more civil organizations and municipalities held such projects in the past years, recognizing the potentials of the method. An example for that is RAKPART, held last year and this year as well by Valyo. The program is connected to autumn’s Budapest Design Week as well! Placemaking Days Budapest is the Hungarian associate event of the New European Bauhaus. The aim of the NEB movement is to design a sustainable, inclusive and beautiful future, focused on creating a liveable environment. Placemaking projects are aligned with NEB’s three most important keywords: inclusivity, sustainability, and aesthetics - these are also the goals we’ll have in mind during this weekend, with all the professionals and locals.
In what kind of Europe would you like to live in? What does a sustainable, aesthetically enriching, open-for-everyone city mean? The aim of the New European Bauhaus (NEB) is together creating a European way of life - based on liveability, inclusivity, quality experiences and aesthetic principles, a wide affordability, sustainability, and circular economy. It’s focused on creating a liveable environment. The initiative’s fundamental goal is to translate the European New Deal for society - building bridges between art, culture, science and technology, while also connecting different generations and developing overall societal mobility.
