SHAPE-EU Short version of the blueprints now available

Following the take-off of the Affordable Housing Initiative, the SHAPE-EU project was launched in March 2022 for a period of 2 years.

As part of its capacity-building programme, the European Affordable Housing Consortium collaborated with experts to put together a set of documents and learning materials to support practitioners in their work in the affordable housing sector.

The Blueprints aim to help local promoters across Europe create thriving communities in existing social and affordable housing districts. They are based on the collection and organisation of information that is already available but remains scattered or simply not accessible. They are divided into three topics: People and Communities, Technologies and Technical Approaches and Governance, Finance and Processes.

The short versions (in English, Italian, Spanish, French, Estonian and Dutch) of the Blueprints for replicating lighthouse districts are finally out and can be dowloaded from the project website here.

The longer versions are currently under revision by the European Commission and will be published soon.
