Housing Europe has been the voice of public, cooperative and social housing providers in Brussels for more than 31 years. Follow us on a trip back in 2019 as well as in the highlights of the previous years with our collection of Activity Reports below.
Our Secretary General, Sorcha Edwards introduces the 2018 Yearbook
Time for Housing Europe to re-think our society’s approach to Housing and our role in shaping the future we want
Housing Europe reacts as in 2019 the Global consensus on the Housing Crisis Grows and Citizens & Cities becoming housing influencers
Out of necessity, 2019 saw Housing Europe become more present in the ‘big picture’ global housing affordability challenge. Via the Housing Europe Observatory, we are tracking the growing number of publications on the issue from bodies such as the World Bank and producing a series of blog with their core messages.
To ensure the voice of our sector is heard, we have launched a 2-year study on Housing Affordability together with the United Nations Economic Committee for Europe (UNECE) and increased contact with the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
2019 also saw the European Elections and our campaign which consolidated our position on the potential of housing providers with the right support to dynamise the welfare state and the energy transition and has put us on a strong footing as the key most relevant priorities of the new Commission are indeed the EU Green Deal and the implementation of the European Pillar of Social Rights.
Our challenge is now to reinforce the recognition of the role of our sector as vital in maintaining local resilience in the face of these challenges and to increase the flow of financial support.
To this end, the 2019 launch of the Housing Evolutions Hub presents the sector as a hub for sustainable social and environmental innovation. This is now a resource for us to strengthen our voice and learn from each other.
