Meanwhile ‘Anyone can make a difference’ was a key message at the recent World Community Land Trust Day in Brussels. The event was attended by previous World Habitat Awards winners including Caño Martín Peña Community Land Trust and Champlain Housing Trust, the biggest US housing trust and an inspiration to many including Community Land Trust Brussels (CLTB). To put the icing on the cake CLTB were presented with the 2021 Gold World Habitat Award on what was also their 10th anniversary. Watch our short film about our year working with CLTB.
Elsewhere, all ten of our European End Street Homelessness partner cities came together recently in Barcelona for our ‘Annual Gathering of Cities’. Together we shared our joint vision of a world without street homelessness and explored what it means to fight for the right to housing, while also retaining constructive relationships with municipalities.
