UIA and URBACT's web conference on 24 April

As part of a one-year learning activity, URBACT and UIA organised a first web conference on 24 April (11am) exploring practical ways cities can implement the right to housing.

Building on the experience of UIA and URBACT cities, this online event was designed as an interactive forum to present and discuss innovative solutions and trends such as community-land trusts, co-housing and cooperative housing.

It aimed to inspire city leaders and practitioners to collaborate and take action at municipal level. The discussions also contributed to the European Urban Agenda Parntership on housing and help develop further policy recommendations to push the agenda on the right to housing at national and EU levels.
