The Event

The NEB Festival brings together citizens from all walks of life to debate and shape our future landscape. It is an opportunity to explore the NEB values of beauty, sustainability and togetherness.

VO created a concept that would bring NEB closer to the citizens. The festival was split into 3 major parts
The FAIR, an inspiring moving exhibition to showcase current and future projects. Opportunities to interact, bringing together actors who are already innovating in line with NEB values, proving that sustainable and society-oriented approaches exist. All projects were available online.
The FEST, a live cultural program with a range of performances with one common thread – promoting inclusion, sustainability and togetherness.
The FORUM, debates building on the key themes of the NEB (transition, architecture, R&I, culture, education, regional development, …), ensuring a well-balanced mix of policy discussions and participatory formats. Designed as a non-conventional space open to all stakeholders, the Forum is available live in Brussels and remotely on our digital platform.
A program of 219 SIDE EVENTS, initiatives organised independently in all EU States, is also on offer.
