Housing Fair Finance

As part of a one-year learning activity, URBACT and UIA organised a third and final web conference on Thursday 19 November (10am-12pm CET) on the topic of housing fair finance.

Today, more European cities and social movements are calling governments at all levels to take responsibility for reaffirming housing as a right and not as a commodity. They are showing the way by trying out concrete actions to implement the right to housing.

This web conference #3 will be dedicated to the topic of fair finance. More specifically, we will ask what role, responsibilities and levers of action cities have in relation to the financialisation of their housing market.

After a short introduction, the web conference will feature UIA and URBACT city cases that are experimenting solutions towards the provision of adequate housing. We will then open up the discussion with a debate on the role of urban authorities, national and EU levels in enabling housing fair finance, considering as well the potentialities of the EU recovery package.

The outcomes of this webinar will build directly on the European Urban Agenda Partnership on affordable housing work, and will explore a set of actions and recommendations in terms of better knowledge among cities, also aiming at pushing the agenda on the right to housing EU wide.

Moderated by: Laura Colini, UIA/URBACT expert & Iván Tosics, URBACT expert

Coordination: Laura Colini  URBACT/UIA expert in the team of URBACT and UIA secretariat (Alice Fauvel and Ophelie Tainguy)
