European week “Housing For All: Progressive ideas for the future”
The lack of affordable housing is affecting more than 80 million people in Europe. The COVID-19 pandemic made the situation even worse, with an increasing number of people struggling to pay their rent or energy bill.
Housing is a human right that must be guaranteed to everybody.
For a just and sustainable recovery, we need to make sure that every citizen benefits from decent, affordable and sustainable housing.
Progressive cities and regions have already put in place innovative solutions that can inspire further action on the ground. Leaving no one behind means first of all leaving no one without a roof over their head.
In cooperation with the Socialist and Democrats Group in the European Parliament, the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS), the Party of European Socialists (PES) and the City of Vienna, the PES Group is organising a week of online debates and a movie projection dedicated to this important topic, with a bunch of speakers who will share their experiences from different angles, feed in their views and come up with ideas on the way forward.
IUT is taking part in two of the European week “Housing for all” events, represented by Barbara Steenbergen, Head of EU office and member of the Executive Committee.
