Have you already found a place to live, or are you still looking? At the Youth Housing Congress, young Berliners spend a day talking to experts about housing and developing ideas on how to improve their housing situation. In the morning, different issues and personal motivations are discussed in workshops. In the afternoon, there are offers for the artistic realisation of the resulting ideas and ambitions. In the evening, all participants are invited to express their visions and demands in a creative manner and discuss them with policymakers of the City of Berlin. Afterwards there is a party!
