At the occasion of the World habitat
day, the Swiss NGO urbaMonde, in the framework of its partnership with Habitat
International Coalition and other organisations, proposes several workshops and
reflections on the theme of Social Production of Habitat that is considered an
efficient alternative to the deteriorating habitat conditions of millions of
people across the globe. Beyond the recognition that the urbanization of the
world is advancing at an accelerated pace, it is essential to consider and
acknowledge the fact that the inhabitant produce and shape their own habitat
through complex processes demonstrating their creativity and capabilities. This
mode of production of urban spaces is present in many countries, and
implemented sometimes at a large-scale, constituting therefore practices that
deserve to be highlighted in order to develop alternatives both in the Global
South and North.
