“Housing for All” is a seminar with hybrid format organized and run by Habitat Norway and its partners. It will be held in Trondheim (NO) on August 24, scheduled 16:00-19:00 (CET time). In presence and online admission is free (upon registration).
Housing is a basic need. Citizens’ right to housing must govern housing policy. It must be treated as a right and not as a commodity. Globally, nationally and locally, housing policies must facilitate the diversity of cities and towns and counteract segregation and exclusion based on real participation and ownership. People must be guaranteed housing they can afford where they live. This requires an effective distribution policy.
As an input to the Government’s new housing whitepaper (2024) Habitat Norway has invited leading international experts to present innovative thinking and approaches.
Key note speakers include:
- Kathrine E. Standal (Boligstiftelsen) on housing rights
- Jardar Sørvoll (NOVA) on the Nordic experiences
- Alexandre Frediani (HIC/IIED) on global trends
These contributions will be supplemented by a rich group of presenters
- Vienna (Robert Temel, Initiative fur gemeinschaftliches Bauen und Wohnen),
- Barcelona (Maite Arrondo, Consultant, Housing Innovation)
- Paris (Lucie Lescude Plaa, Project Manager, Paris Habitat)
- London (Claudia Murray, Research Fellow, University of Reading and Lead member of the Metrex Housing Group) and
- Toronto (Melanie Redman, “A Way Home. Together to end Youth Homelessness/Making the Shift”)
The discussion will be moderated by:
Ellen de Vibe, former Chief, Urban Planning, Oslo
Subsequently, based on this input local youth politicians from major political parties will, ahead of September’s local and regional elections, discuss Norway’s and Trondheim’s housing challenges.
