Within Creating Homes for Tomorrow, CANactions School travels to 4 metropoles in western, northern and central Europe and explores their innovative approaches for creating more livable neighborhoods. Based on the findings, we develop new strategies for locally specific and globally relevant questions, considering spatial, economic, social and political measures.
The program is exposed to the housing context of the three European cities that are widely acclaimed for their high living quality –Amsterdam, Zurich and Helsinki, and absorbs their practices to specifically address the housing challenges of the rapidly expanding Eastern European metropolis of Kyiv.
'The program will focus on the extraction of general principles of urban environment, as well as reflect the ideas of their residents about the quality of housing and the benefits of city life. The idea is to investigate and elaborate on a variety of everyday life scenarios', Romea Muryn, CANactions School Program Director.
