FPAA participation in the UIA 2022 International Forum - AHA Madrid

The event, whose central theme is "The Activation of Affordable Housing - Breaking Barriers", has the participation of FPAA through its president, Architect Gerardo Montaruli, invited by the International Union of Architects (UIA), and also as the Argentinean representative, promoted by the Argentinean Federation of Architects Entities (FADEA). The forum, held in the city of Madrid, seeks to address the global problem of access to housing from an international perspective, with the participation of representatives from all over the world and divisions of the UIA presenting reports, work programmes and proposals for possible lines of action in the medium and long term.

Affordable, decent and adequate housing must also be sustainable, in healthy conditions and of good quality, guaranteeing basic services and infrastructure. Because rights do not exempt us from commitments.
