UrbaMonde organizes a conference in partnership with the Association des Ingénieurs Civils d’HEPIA (AICH) on Housing professions and International Solidarity.

Inhabitants of vulnerable cities and areas engage in efforts for a decent and sustainable home. How can housing and planning experts contribute to these efforts and improve their quality of life? This question will be subject of the conference with the presentation of several projects, in order to open the reflection with the teachers and students of HEPIA about the possibility to organize internships directly related to their area of expertise and to broaden their view as housing professionals.
