Kick-off conferentie Europees project SHICC

 
 
SHICC Interreg North-West Europe

 

Op dinsdag 22 mei en woensdag 23 mei trappen we samen met onze Europese partners het CLT-project 'SHICC' op gang.

Dat gebeurt met een startconferentie in Rijsel (Frankrijk).

CLT Gent is één van de vijf Europese partners in het -project. Dat staat voor 'Sustainable housing for inclusive and cohesive cities'. Met dit project willen we samen de oprichting ondersteunen van meer en meer succesvolle CLT's in steden verspreid over de Noord-Westelijke regio van Europa. De komende drie jaar zal het project investeren in vier bestaande CLT's in Brussel, Gent Rijsel en London om te bewijzen dat het CLT-idee werkt. Een tweede doel is de CLT's te voorzien van een meer ondersteuning op het vlak van lokale, regionale en nationale beleidskeuzes, financiering en regelgeving.

Tegen het einde van het SHICC-project willen we een brede CLT-beweging opgezet hebben in de regio. We hopen dat tegen dan onze community land trusts door steeds meer mensen en beleidsmakers in alle betrokken landen gezien worden als een logische aanpak om het woningaanbod te verhogen en aan stadsvernieuwing te doen.

Workshop 1: How do we Finance CLTs? A 360° Perspective on CLT Finance

One of the main objectives of SHICC is to analyse the existing models of CLT financing across the NWE region.  The preliminary results of a financial mapping will be presented. Inspiring financial instruments will be shared and the conditions of their replicability discussed among participants.

Translation FR-EN and EN-FR will be provided

Workshop 2: How to boost Community Engagement in CLTs?

The aim of this workshop is to share practice and lessons learnt from 2 UK CLTs, both with active resident groups and communities that have been integral to building the movement from the ground up. This workshop will include an introduction to London CLT and Heart of Hastings CLT, a compare and contrast exercise of the two projects and a chance to think about how such practices might work in your context.

No translation will be provided

Workshop 3: CLTs: A Housing Solution for the Most Deprived?

A key question is how the CLT model can be a solution for households with very low or no incomes, as well as for other forms of marginalisation. This session will seek to explore these solutions through the presentation of existing practices and a discussion on how CLTs can help address this.
