The ACE Statement has been presented on the occasion of the Affordable Housing Activation Forum held in Madrid on 18-20 May 2022.
"The way we inhabit our planet has been elevated to the highest political level with the New European Bauhaus, which invites us collectively to reimagine our living spaces to make them more sustainable, inclusive and beautiful.
It is time for immediate action. The way we design and build our housing must be rethought with respect to nature, adopting a holistic approach that seeks to recover architectural, urban and landscape quality, for individual and community wellbeing.
This paradigm shift requires to rethink the regulatory framework at all governance levels and to accelerate the exchange and uptake of best practices in urban and rural areas." stated Ruth Schagemann, ACE President.
