Updates from the IUT president, Sven Bergenstråhle

On the 22nd-23rd November 2018, I was invited to speak at and attend a conference in Prague on the theme of “European Smart and Sharing Cities.  A  report is attached here , and my presentation for the first session can be found here and for the fourth session here.


On Friday, 26th October, 2018 Threshold hosted a one-day housing policy conference as part of the housing charity’s 40th anniversary events. ‘Reimagining Ireland’s Future – housing, wealth and inequality’ brought together a range of Irish and European housing and social experts to examine what renting and home ownership could look like in Ireland in the decades to come and how these concepts can interplay.

The conference, chaired by the Director of Public Affairs with Murray Consultants and a former journalist Mark Brennock, also explored how we will live in the future, through examining inequality, opportunity and tenure. You can find my presentation here and also an article on the subject of “How to get housing for all households“.
