A Social Green Deal for Europe
We want to emphasise that public, cooperative and social housing providers deliver homes.
A home implies:
Sense of community and neighbourhood.
Place ownership and pride.
Security, wellbeing and satisfaction.
For a successful transition we need citizens to come on board and the neighbourhood level is the level from which people derive their identity.
This is exactly the level where we, as public, cooperative and social housing providers, should interact with our tenants.
The neighbourhood level is what makes a house a home.
We need to renovate district by district not house by house.
