Housing in the city of the future

The challenges of future housing were analysed at the Smart City Expo World Congress. As part of the event, Barcelona City Council organised a programme of activities, speeches, discussions and debates on housing.

On the one hand, a meeting was held for the members of the big European cities network, Eurocities, to discuss and debate rent-stabilisation measures and the municipal-level policies that could be taken to ensure the right to housing. On the other hand, a chat was organised on the Barcelona Metropolitan Housing Observatory where the goals and challenges of the City Council’s new project were explained.
