Resumen del proyecto:

The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed that the failure to guarantee the right to adequate housing has had major consequences during this global crisis in Europe. CO-HOPE is a response to this health, housing and social crisis. CO-HOPE focuses on carrying out applied research through a mixed methods evaluation of the resilience and transformative capacities of collaborative housing projects and inhabitants in five European countries (Obj. 1,2), co-creating pandemic resilient participatory design approaches (Obj. 3), generating policy analysis and advocacy (Obj. 4) and implementing a North-South capacity building programme on affordable and pandemic-resilient collaborative housing (Obj. 5). CO-HOPE has an inter- and transdisciplinary approach, incorporating complementary forms of knowledge through cooperation between researchers and practitioners, residents, civil society organizations and local authorities. To foster urban transformation capacities, Non-Profit Organizations active in international policy advocacy for adequate housing and the right to the city as well as Universities with extensive experience in conducting capacity-building programmes through North-South cooperation are leading specific work packages. The potential-oriented recommendations to policymakers and capacity building activities will contribute to a shift in housing provision towards community-led projects in more caring and cohesive environments and ecosystems of actors.
