About this Event

Cities implementing Housing First in Europe: Learning from Lyon. 

Theme of the meeting

Since 2018, Lyon Metropole is working with the national level to adopt an extensive plan to generalise Housing First in the city's approach to combat homelessness.

To learn from Lyon's experience, Eurocities is organising an online policy transfer. City experts are invited to join us online to discover Lyon's strategy and how the approach of Housing First can be applied to different groups with diverse needs. Presentations, interviews and exchanges will be used to analyse the success factors of Lyon's approach.

We are looking for cities to submit a challenge on adapting homelessness services in times of covid-19

Your city identified one or more aspects that are challenging in supporting homeless people during this crisis? You want to learn how Lyon is adapting their services to a second lockdown? You are interested to exhange and learn from other city officers in a similar situation? We are looking for cities that are interested to co-create innovative solutions to their local challenge.
