Housing for all


Slovenia is facing a drastic housing situation, as the Slovenian housing stock is among the oldest in Europe – 62% of dwellings are over 40 years old. Due to the fact that over the last 30 years little new apartments have been built, their prices, despite numerous disadvantages, remain high, most noticeably in Ljubljana and the seaside municipalities. This situation is the result of a non-existent housing policy, as no government since 1991 paid any serious attention to this field.
Housing is also severely underfunded, with Slovenia spending only about 0.04% of its annual budget on housing, while the EU average is 0.54% and the average in Western European countries is about 1%. Since little attention is being paid to these issues, a few organizations (PIP, PiNA, IPoP, ISSP and Avanta Largo) have created the Housing for All Consortium to research housing policies and activate the public, politicians, experts and the media to start paying attention to this topic and to develop innovative, community friendly and sustainable solutions.
An adequate solution to the housing problem is a precondition for a quality, independent life. High costs and uncertainty about long-term living are preventing people to create a proper home and to participate in society. They also complicate career planning and creating a family. Nowadays, a quality life without decent, affordable housing cannot be imagined. Furthermore, high housing prices, a chaotic rental market, housing insecurity, and a strengthening of commodification of housing are increasing inequality, enhancing exploitation and exclusion, which is a base for many other societal problems. For this reason, the issue of housing supply is a key social and political issue, as the ways of providing housing have a fundamental impact on the quality of people’s lives.

At the Housing for All consortium, we strive for decent and affordable housing for all, with a focus on professional and research activity. What is more, we want to encourage a systematic regulation of the housing market, introduction of participatory planning and new, inovative sustainable solutions for new construction projects. We shall achieve this by connecting different stakeholders and with broad publi support.
