Housing Recovery Symposium with Ukrainian and other European professionals
The invasion of Ukraine has caused considerable loss of life, damage to homes, and the erosion of livelihoods. Being able to return home is not only an aspiration for many, but essential to Ukraine’s social and economic recovery. Tangible efforts to rebuild homes and neighbourhoods offer hope to the millions of Ukrainians now displaced across Europe.

For these reasons, the rebuilding of homes and neighbourhoods require urgent attention and appropriate knowledge, technical assistance, together with adequate long-term investment. Therefore, a symposium is organised in The Hague. If you'd like to join, sign up below.The Netherlands and the large European community might be of help. For that reason, a symposium is organised in the Netherlands (The Hague) where Ukrainian and other European professionals share knowledge on (affordable) housing provision and urban development. The aim is helping to define the contours of future housing and land policies in Ukraine. The event will involve and address key stakeholders in the recovery, such as representatives of the Ukrainian government and the European Union.

Together with the many Ukrainian housing and urban professionals present in the Netherlands at this moment, experts from the Netherlands and beyond will present tools for the recovery of homes and neighbourhoods. Contributions from the Ukrainian government, the European Commission, Dutch government and the International Organisation of Migration will complete this unique half-day symposium.
