Making a house a home #6: Housing for All

In this episode we reach out to you from Vienna and the venue of the international conference entitled ‘Housing for All’. We used the visit of our delegation to the Austrian capital for this event to hold two interviews that shed light to affordable housing from different starting points.
In the first part of our show, we meet the UN Special Rapporteur on Adequate Housing, Leilani Farha, a leading voice in raising awareness on a number of key challenges for affordable housing- first and foremost financialization- through a number of impactful initiatives such as the Global Campaign ‘The Shift’.
In the second part, we see how Barcelona and New York city work together to address their affordable housing challenge. What are the issues that this transatlantic partnership is built upon? What kind of solutions are they looking for? How can you help them? Eduard Cabre Romans, International Relations Consultant to the Barcelona Housing Department has the answers to all these questions.

Affordable housing is indeed a challenge. It is quite inspiring to see two such big cities like Barcelona and New York joining forces!
