How to implement the right to housing?
This year the 18th European Week for Regions and Cities goes online! This participatory lab, which is co-organised by Urban Innovative Actions initiative and URBACT, will take place on 14 October, 09.30-11.00 (CET), through ZOOM.
In the last months, governments across Europe invested unprecedented efforts to keep safe those at risk with Cities implementing exceptional strategies and measures to keep everyone housed. In some cases, this nearly reduced homelessness to zero. However, in the aftermath of the emergency peak of last spring, long-term affordable, adequate and dignified solutions become a mandate that cannot be blinded.
In 2020, UIA and URBACT are exploring how cities can design housing policies and practical solutions to implement the right to housing. The goal of this session is to exchange about the cities engagement, their experiences in practice while pushing the agenda on the right to housing in Europe and to enrich the EU Urban Agenda work further. Participants at the session will have a space to share their inputs on affordable housing and their (current) situation.
