Housing for all: a call for a renewed European ambition 2023

19 September - 2023 , Brussels

European Parliament in Brussels – Room 6Q1

The Metropolis of Lyon invites you to attend a high-level event on housing, poor housing and homelessness organised with the European Parliament’s urban intergroup, Eurocities, FEANTSA and Housing Europe, The Federation of Public, Cooperative and Social Housing, on Tuesday 19 September 2023, in the European Parliament in Brussels.

As the mandates of the current European Parliament and European Commission draw to a close and 2024 will see the shaping of new political priorities for the European Union, it is now time to take stock of what has been achieved since 2019 and what remains to be achieved to ensure all European citizens have access to affordable and decent housing.

Aiming at providing political impetus for the 2024-2029 European Commission and European Parliament mandates, this high-level event will tackle three different aspects of the housing crisis: the difficulty for lower-income “front-line” workers to find affordable housing, homelessness and indecent housing, and the issue of the financialisation of housing and its impact in cities.
