The 3rd International Social Housing Festival in Helsinki has come to an end. Sincere thanks to all the partners and festival participants, who made the festival happen!

– The Housing Finance and Development Centre of Finland (ARA), City of Helsinki and Housing Europe

PSST. Please stay tuned for the 4th edition of the International Social Housing Festival, which takes place on 21–24 March 2023 in beautiful Barcelona!

International Social Housing Festival 2022 took place in Helsinki, Finland, on June 14–17, and it was 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) explored housing as the foundation of good life. The festival highlighted 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 welcomed 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 came together to provide a variety of seminars, site visits and workshops exploring both policy and practice of putting people first.

THANK YOU FOR BEING AT HOME!
