About the project

Bauhaus of the Seas Sails aims at fostering a sustainable and inclusive transition by working together with local communities through cultural and inclusive activities to foster new relations and ways to live with the sea. A healthy and thriving sea is a prerequisite for all life on the planet. We need to develop new relationships with the sea and its inhabitants. A relationship where we don't see the sea as a nice view or a resource but rather as a neighbour that we need to get to know and live with. As we do with our human neighbours, we must care for and nurture our relationship with the sea.

The project enables cultural actors, associations and single citizens to drive creative activities to explore and strengthen cities' relation with the sea. Bauhaus of the Sea Sails is the sixth EU-financed Lighthouse project which aims to develop the so-called Lighthouse Demonstrators within the EU program New European Bauhaus (NEB). Six countries participate in the project (Portugal, Italy, The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Sweden) and a total of 18 partners, with representatives from local authorities, universities, and cultural organizations.

The project is coordinated by the Interactive Technologies Institute in Lisbon. The Swedish partners are Malmö University, The Forum for Social Innovation Sweden and the Marine Knowledge Center in Malmö.
