One of our main priorities is definitely making the right to decent and affordable housing a reality for all.
Over 85 million people in the European Union are overburdened by housing costs. Too many people live in poor quality or dilapidated homes. Waiting lists for social and affordable housing are growing longer. Energy poverty, eviction and homelessness loom over the lives of millions of citizens. And these inequalities – already severe – are being worsened by COVID-19.
Housing must become a top priority for the European Union and all its policies must contribute towards decent and affordable housing for all.
We believe in a more cohesive Europe that protects everyone by guaranteeing all citizens have a decent place to live, particularly vulnerable groups. We believe that we can mitigate the climate crisis, in partnership with our citizens and communities, by building a housing sector which delivers energy-efficient homes. At local and regional level, we believe we must do everything to promote inclusive communities and innovative cooperation in housing.
