Towards a social green transition in affordable housing
Time & Location
About the Event
Public, cooperative and social housing providers are at the crossroads of the social, climate and construction goals set to advance in the green transition towards 2050. In this session we will bring to the forefront the social criteria to be considered in the projects supported under the Affordable Housing Initiative and the New European Bauhaus schemes included in the Renovation Wave.
The Affordable Housing Initiative and the New European Bauhaus can become the vehicle to help reconcile liveability, housing affordability and decarbonisation of the built environment – vital if the Renovation Wave is to succeed. They can serve to build upon & harness the potential of public, cooperative and social housing provider to reconcile climate emergency with social mission through their ability to orchestrate amongst the public, social economy and construction sector.
This session will help define the optimal features, governance & financing for the lighthouse districts supported by these initiatives through a social lens:
- What features should the supported projects have?
- What should be the funding streams?
- How should the initiatives be governed? A live scriber will capture the main messages from the session and will translate them into an illustration of a joint vision of the future lighthouse districts.
