|Housing for All- Housing Europe supports the EU Day of Solidarity between Generations
Housing Europe participates, celebrates and supports the EU Day of Solidarity between Generations. We have interviewed two experts among our membership
who shed light to the co-relation between housing and ageing issues.
, former Chair of Housing Europe Working Group on Housing and Ageing, CEO of Housing Company Ciliopee and Dagmar Reiß-Fechter
, former chair of Housing Europe Section of private not-for-profit housing sector have illustrated extensive experience and expertise on ageing-related issues, focusing particularly on the role of housing. Both of them led the Housing Europe contribution to the European Year on Active Ageing and Solidarity 2012, including their keynote presentations at our conference on "Ageing and Affordable Housing" that took place in Brussels in November 2012.
Less than three years after the above mentioned milestone and on the occasion of the EU Day of Solidarity between Generations Housing Europe has asked both Mrs. Boulmier and Mrs. Reiß-Fechter to share their views on where EU stands regarding the state of the EU ageing policy. Were enough steps taken since 2012? What still needs to be done? Is there a shift of the public opinion? What are the main elements of independent living in our days?
