In the occasion of the second editions of the International Social Housing Festival in Lyon, HIC and the Global Platform for the Right to the City will be organizing an open assembly with HIC members, allies and other organizations.

This European assembly aims to create a space for dialogue, reflection and action between social movements from different European countries on urban issues in the broad sense: housing, public services, rights and freedoms, public space, political participation, economic models, among others. 

The objective is to generate solidarity between different realities, seeking common points and learning from successful practices.

The assembly is being organized under the framework of the International Social Housing Festival and will count with the presence of HIC members and allies from Lyon, France and Europe in general. 

Don't forget to check out the other activities HIC will be engaged in!
