SHAPE-EU Final event on 21 February 2024. Save the date & register!

The European Affordable Housing Consortium (SHAPE-EU) has concluded its initial phase by reconciling the need for affordable housing, the Green European Urban Renewal and the reduction of carbon emissions. For the last 24 months, the project team has been preparing the ground for a renovation wave driven by social and technical innovation centred around people.

Drawing inspiration from people and places who have successfully put the fair energy transition into practice in local Lighthouse Districts, the European Affordable Housing Consortium team has created a community ready to share knowledge and tools with practitioners who are now taking the path. After these intensive months of research, study visits, workshops and exchanges, the Blueprints for Replication of Lighthouse Districts were developed to serve as a practical guide for the planning, financing and implementation of integrated district renovation projects while always taking into consideration that there is “no solution fits all”.

SHAPE-EU Final Conference "Launching 100 lighthouse districts" will be organised at the European Committee of the Regions in Brussels on 21 February 2024 (9:00 - 13:30 CET).

The project team hopes that this will be an inspirational and fruitful event for EU policymakers, but also for all the key stakeholders of the Local Industrial Partnership that are represented in the project consortium (local authorities, social, public and cooperative housing providers and SMEs).
