MOBA participated in the third International Social Housing Festival in Helsinki (June 14-17, 2022). The festival highlighted the role of social, public and co-operative housing in achieving socially and ecologically sustainable living in our cities now and in the future.
Alongside its partners of the CoHabitat Network, MOBA contributed to the European Collaborative Housing Day that took place on June 15, and convened a round table discussion to address the challenges of accessing affordable finance for cooperative housing projects in Central and Southeastern Europe. The roundtable featured participants from the MOBA network, larger housing co-operatives from Germany and the UK, the Slovenian Housing Fund. It will reflected on possible pathways to overcome the housing finance challenge, ranging from community-based finance; public policies at the municipal and national levels; and institutional support at the European level.
