Housing Matters! by MIPIM x Co-Liv

What is "Housing Matters!"?

Every week, more than 1.5 million people move to a city somewhere in the world. Yet most cities are not keeping up with rising housing demands, which drives up prices and housing inequality in the process. Now is the time to imaginatively explore how we might shape the future of living.

In response, MIPIM will convene a new event dedicated to housing in collaboration with Co-Liv, a leading global association of co-living professionals. MIPIM's unique audience, comprising key decision-makers in the real estate sector from over 90 countries, ensures a platform for exchanging tangible and replicable innovations and perspectives capable of driving significant change.

Let’s explore solutions such as built-to-rent, coliving, multi-family housing, corporate housing…, and share visions of what sustainable housing should and could be.

Join us on Monday 11 March for this inspirational and innovative event!
