    Join us on the 20th of June for an engaging webinar on affordable housing, a key element in urban planning with profound impacts on social equity, economic stability, and community well-being.

    Discover how a paradigm shift in affordable housing is necessary and achievable. Learn how high-quality, affordable housing can promote positive behavioral changes among residents, benefiting entire neighborhoods and communities. We’ll also discuss how population growth and the increase in homelessness in certain cities demand faster affordable housing development through non-traditional construction methods.

    The webinar will feature lightning presentations from experts in the Barcelona Metropolitan Area, Spain, and the City of Toronto, Canada, offering valuable insights and real-world examples. Participants will have the opportunity to engage and share their own experiences and perspectives. Don’t miss this chance to be part of the conversation on transforming urban housing for a better future.
