Social housing: a service of general interest to guarantee decent, energy-efficient and affordable accommodation for all? - Brussels

The European Economic and Social Committee is hosting this conference. Given that the danger of excessive housing costs no longer affects only the most disadvantaged, but an ever-growing part of the population, the purpose of housing policy must not be restricted to assisting vulnerable individuals. It must also promote the supply of affordable homes for all, ensure that housing matches family needs, promote high-quality, energy-efficient housing, a social mix within buildings and urban areas, and tackle segregation.
