9:00 - 10:20 (09/06/2023)

Austria, Finland and the Netherlands have a long tradition in social housing. Yet, growing affordability issues and spatial segregation require our attention, as do new global challenges. How do we deal with these issues through innovative policies? How can we guarantee political support for social housing as public good despite diverging local and national political interests? Pitching our recent innovative policies, we will discuss these questions with an expert panel and the audience.
