Housing for All. Affordable Housing in Growing Cities
Which legal and financial conditions are needed in Europe to increase investment in affordable housing? Which benefits does affordable housing provide for European Cities and the economy? These questions will form the basis of the international conference „Housing for All. Affordable Housing in Growing Cities“ in Vienna. Prominent politicans, well-known experts, scientists and housing providers from different cities will discuss the topic comprehensively. The findings of the European Urban Agenda – Housing Partnership will also be presented. The City of Vienna would also like to take this oppertunity to invite you to get to know the Viennese model of social housing through study visits.
Further information will follow in the near future.

EFL Seminar Bamberg
On March 28 & 29 2019, our German member Joseph Stiftung from Bamberg will host a housing event of the European Federation for Living. The theme and content of the event will be published later.
Bamberg is a beautiful city and is well known as UNESCO World Heritage city. Bamberg is located in southern Germany in the north of Bavaria. It is a good example of a central European town with a basically early medieval plan and many surviving ecclesiastical and secular buildings of the medieval period. When Henry II, Duke of Bavaria, became King of Germany in 1007 he made Bamberg the seat of a bishopric, intended to become a ‘second Rome’. Of particular interest is the way in which the present town illustrates the link between agriculture (market gardens and vineyards) and the urban distribution centre.

Summer School 2019
European Summer School for Young Professionals 15-18 July 2019 Bochum
Each year, 25-30 young people from all over Europe come to Bochum to discuss current challenges of the social housing sector with academic experts and experienced practitioners.
What will cities look like in the future? How will urban life become sustainable? Is “Smart City” just a buzzword or does it lead us towards a digitized way of living? How can we make sure that the digital transition does not leave a significant number of people behind? These and many other questions will be discussed in the 2019 edition of the European Summer School.
Join the European exchange of best practices and innovative approaches, develop new ideas and concepts in interactive workshops, see real examples in field visits, meet fellow young housing professionals from other European countries, and build up your personal European network – four exciting and instructional days are awaiting you in Bochum! Stay tuned for the full programme!
The European Summer School is brought to you by EBZ – European Education Centre for Housing and Real Estate in cooperation with EFL European Federation for Living, Housing Europe, the European Federation of Public, Cooperative and Social Housing and Housing Initiative for Eastern Europe IWO.
