Are you concerned about access to housing in our European cities? Would you like to explore urban development and the struggle of local activists & practioners for liveable cities, as well as look at the past, present and future challenges of the city of Zagreb? Then join the INURA conference 2019!
Under the title “City (Un)Defeated. Streams of struggle” the 29th edition of the International Network for Urban Research and Action annual conference will take place in Zagreb, Croatia, from 30th June to 3rd July. INURA 19 will bring together members of its network – consisting of activists and researchers from community and environmental groups, universities, and local administrations, who wish to share experiences and to participate in common research.
Focusing on the topic of transformative cities as one of its thematic priorities, the Green European Foundation aims to support the emergence of trans-local networks and urban spaces as breeding ground for progressive policies, and will be present at the conference to this end.
About the event
Besides being present throughout the conference with an info stand, GEF will host, together with the support of the Institute for Political Ecology, a public panel in the evening of Monday, 1st July, to address one of the most pressing issues among urban activists all over Europe: the right to housing.
In the framework of the transnational project on Cities as Places of Hope in the European Union, challenges around urban housing as well as possible alternative pathways for the future will be addressed with experts and activists from all over Europe.
