What is the added value Housing Europe brings to its members?
At a time when housing seems to be a key challenge in many countries with supply of affordable homes being among the priorities of most political agendas at national level the added value of being part of a wider network increases. At times of pressure national bodies can become stronger by joining a broader, international alliance. What are the key benefits?
- Have a stronger voice both at EU and at national level by adding up your views to those of more than 43.000 regional and local housing providers from across Europe
- Now that many EU policies in the fields of Energy, Financial Regulation, Urban Affairs etc. affect the present and the future of housing make sure that you stay up-to-date with all important developments.
- Get access to evidence to support your work at national level. Both through to the research findings of our Observatory and the monitoring of policies and best practices across Europe you may get equipped with additional means to protect your interests at national level.
- Exchange on what works best on the ground. Stay up-to-date with best practices and schemes that have proven to be effective. Our communication channels feed you constantly with information, while initiatives such as the European Responsible Housing Awards offer a chance to get in touch with exceptional projects that make a difference in the wider community in which housing providers operate.
- Be part of EU projects that will allow you to collaborate with diverse partners from many EU member states on a wide range of issues around technical and social innovation.
- Take part in international events and meet interesting peers. Throughout the year, Housing Europe organises various big and small scale events in Brussels and other European cities in collaboration with its members, while it participates in many more organised by third parties. Get access to our agenda and use the opportunities to expand your network of contacts.
