The nomad of the future

12nd-20th of May 2021

Iscar, Spain

Youth Exchange

Summary

 

“The nomad of the future”. The problem of young people access to housing is clear and the promoters, administrations and financial sector must be able to implement solutions to solve it.
Currently, this study shows a completely disproportionate scheme, one third of the population can opt or own a house, 25% of these young people live renting in pairs, and we are talking about 26% have not yet become independent. In addition, there is another 25% that have their own home and are planning to buy another house to improve their currently conditions.
The ways of inhabiting a home in most European countries have traditionally fluctuate between buying and renting. Taking into account the first parameter, most of these countries are characterized by having developed a culture where ownership predominates. However, and as a result of the effects of the bursting of the housing bubble and subsequent economic crisis, more and more people are choosing rent as the most effective way to access a home. This trend is reproduced internationally, where the alternatives are based on innovative hybrids.
In this exchange, we intend to explore, together with our young participants and partner entities, new habitability formulas that empower the young person and open a housing supply that has been unknown or unexplored until now that will help them achieve the sustainable independence they need to acquire.
The language of the project will be English
