TOURS

Housing for Degrowth European Train Tour 2018

27 October–4 December 2018

High mortgage debts, homelessness and destructive urbanisation? There is an alternative — housing for degrowth.

As researchers, practitioners and activists, Anitra Nelson and François Schneider will present a degrowth narrative of housing at 26 events in 11 countries — France, the Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovenia, Austria, Italy, Switzerland and Spain — in research institutes, universities, collective housing projects and central city venues.

Our new co-edited book Housing for Degrowth: Principles, Models, Challenges and Opportunities with 25 contributors has just been released in the Routledge Environmental Humanities series. At many events we will be joined by other contributors to the collection and local urbanists.

The Schedule is a work-in-progress so please return for updates — and see the Events page at this site.
