We are happy to finally announce the date of our joint conference! The conference is organised by From the Sea to the City, a European civil society network in cooperation with the cities of Palermo and Potsdam.

At the same time, they must find effective local solutions to the effects of transnational challenges and thus make an important contribution to solving global problems.
In 2017, guidelines for good participation in housing construction were developed in a project between the state-owned housing associations and the non-profit HUMBOLDT-VIADRINA Governance Platform.

In a further project phase in 2019/2020, an initial assessment has now been made
As part of the From the See to the City consortium, we are very pleased to publish our first joint publication with key recommendations and best practices in the field of European migration. The recommendations are aimed at EU representatives, mayors, local authority representatives and civil society.
