Public, cooperative and social housing facing a global pandemic in collaboration
How doing an internship at Housing Europe during the COVID-19 lockdown turned into an inspiration for a master thesis ?
Marion Brunet graduated from the French engineering school of sustainable planning (ENTPE), with a master in Urban and territorial politics and strategies from the Lyon urban planning institute (IUL). Having started her internship with Housing Europe during the first COVID lockdown, she decided to dedicate her master thesis to the way public, cooperative and social housing providers in Europe have been weathering the storm collectively.
First 2 weeks at Housing Europe and a first business trip to VVH in Antwerp
Our new Communications Director, Diana Yordanova shares her experience
Only two weeks after embarking on a new journey - to communicate about the need of affordable, sustainable homes as part of Housing Europe’s team - I hopped on a train to Antwerp together with our Secretary General, Sorcha Edwards and colleague Clara Mafé, responsible for our OurHomesOurDeal initiative to meet our member in Flanders.
The role of affordable housing providers and the European Parliament in realising this ambition
Together with the Socialists & Democrats group, co-hosted by MEP Estrella Dura, Housing Europe organised a webinar dedicated to the role of our social, housing and affordable housing providers and the European Parliament in implementing the right to housing in its ever-present urgency. We were joined by Laurent Ghekiere, Chair of the Housing Europe Observatory, AVS Director-General Maria Montes Miguel, Director of FEANTSA Freek Spinnewij and Silvia Ganzerla - Policy Director of EUROCITIES.
