TOWARDS SUSTAINABLE HOMES AND NEIGHBOURHOODS IN THE MEDITERRANEAN REGION
A #Housing2030 initiative webinar | 17 September 2020
Malta, like other Euro-American societies has experienced drastic demographic, political and economic transformations due to the pull of progress brought about by an economic boom. Such changes, which are largely experienced at a household level, cannot be ignored by the state. Hence, the Ministry for Social Accommodation sought to address these social shifts by developing and implementing its first-ever national housing system. The Ministry has made clear that it is putting the home at the centre of Maltese society - a vision which is rethinking and re-evaluating contemporary housing from a holistic perspective. This system is taking a people-centred approach to housing as it invests in adequate housing in order to ensure security, belonging, prosperity and wellbeing in Malta.
This online workshop was organised by the Ministry for Social Accommodation, Malta in cooperation with United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), Housing Europe, UN-Habitat and Union for the Mediterranean within the initiative “#Housing2030 - Improving Housing Affordability in the UNECE region.
