Across Europe, housing is becoming increasingly unaffordable and a factor of exclusion. At the same time, citizens and housing practitioners organize to plan alternatives for more sustainable and inclusive communities. The European Collaborative Housing Day is an initiative of the CoHabitat Network facilitated by UrbaMonde in collaboration with a number of city-makers, community-led housing organisations and allies from across Europe. It aims to showcase inspiring civic initiatives, but also raises awareness and lay out a roadmap for the effective support of these community-led processes by public and private actors (in the institutional and financial realms).
The third edition of the European Collaborative Housing Day was organised in the framework of the International Social Housing Festival (June 4-8th) in Lyon.
