Helsinki WELCOMEs you HOME in 2022

International Social Housing Festival 2022 will take place in Helsinki, Finland, on June 14–17 and it is organized by The Housing Finance and Development Centre of Finland (ARA), City of Helsinki and Housing Europe. The 2022 edition of International Social Housing Festival (ISHF) explores housing as the foundation of good life. The festival highlights the role of social, public and co-operative housing in achieving socially and ecologically sustainable living in our cities now and in the future.

We welcome the international housing community – housing practitioners, policymakers, architects, researchers and tenants – to take part in this critical conversation, ask questions and find answers together.

A range of Finnish and international partners will come together to provide a variety of seminars, site visits and workshops exploring both policy and practice of putting people first.

Please stay tuned for upcoming news on this website and on Twitter.
