Representatives of both Housing Cooperatives and the Ministries in charge of Housing, of EU and EU neighbourhood countries.
Big or small, new or old, housing cooperatives in different forms are to be found in every corner of the world and they offer affordable and people-centred housing solutions in many different contexts.
What different models of housing cooperatives exist in Europe and in neighbouring Mediterranean countries? What are the success factors and how can they be replicated? and most important how can the institutional setting facilitate the spread of cooperative housing?
The Union for the Mediterranean and Housing Europe are joining forces to try to come up together with answers to these and other questions at a workshop to be held in the framework of the International Social Housing Festival.
First session: Housing cooperatives in Europe: examples from the sector
A view from the sector through an exchange among housing coops in Italy, Germany and Ireland
moderated by Marten Lilja, Deputy Managing Director, Riksbyggen (Sweden)
Second session: What role for housing coops in neighbouring Mediterranean countries?
Panel discussion with representatives from ministries and experts from the region
Moderated by Doris Andoni, Director, Housing Department, Ministry of Finance and Economy (Albania)
