1. Set a European goal of eradicating homelessness by 2030
2. Fight evictions and create inclusive housing markets
3. Increase Europe’s affordable housing stock
4. Devise an integrated European strategy on housing
5. Prioritise the European Green Deal
6. Adapt European rules for digital platforms

Housing Europe follows closely the development of the report and supports the proposed socio-economic measures that clearly have the potential to improve the life of communities.
