A New Green Deal for Urban Housing

Chair in Dignified Housing

On January 28, the UPF Barcelona School of Management and the Metropolitan House Foundation will present the Chair in Dignified and Sustainable Housing, which aims to be a space for discussion aimed at analyzing housing policies from a social and environmental perspective, without losing sight of the financial and economic sphere.

To get the ball rolling, the Chair is organizing its first conference "A New Green Deal for Urban Housing", which will address public policies for urban regeneration within the framework of the NextGeneration EU Program and the creation of sustainable, digitized and smart housing. 

The sessions will be attended by authorities such as the Rector of the Pompeu Fabra University (UPF), Prof. Oriol Amat; the President of the Metropolitan House Foundation, Mr. Rafael Angulo; the President of the Innovation, Knowledge and Documentation Council of Incasol, Mr. Pere Serra; or the President of the Barcelona Demarcation of the Col·legi d'Arquitectes de Catalunya, Ms. Sandra Bestraten.
