HOUSEFUL meets in Vienna
HOUSEFUL members gathered in Austria to plan their future actions to enable a sustainable housing sector
The partners of the HOUSEFUL Consortium have met in Vienna (Austria) on the 12th and 13th of November 2018. Goal of the meeting was to discuss the progress made in the last six months and to coordinate future work. This was the first gathering after the kick-off meeting, which took place on the 24th and 25th of May in Terrassa, nearby Barcelona (Spain), to launch HOUSEFUL.
The meeting was organised by Neues Leben, one of the Consortium’s Viennese partners. It was also a chance for partners to visit one of the two HOUSEFUL’s local Frontrunner Buildings, a residential building consisting of 54 apartments, one day care center and one supervised flat-sharing community for young people located in Donaufelder Straße 115, in the district of Floridsdorf.
The meeting offered very fruitful discussions and ideas exchange. Next HOUSEFUL’s internal meeting will be in Spring 2019.
