There is a full set of habitat related events Thursday and Friday at the urban/local thematic axes and in other thematic areas.
Besides there is an “urban space” for informal meetings and side events.
We also try to present films, i.e. about “Frankfurt Housing Struggles” at evening.
There will be a horizontal meeting at the urban space on Saturday morning.
AITEC, DAL and others want to schedule a working meeting on action planning Thursday 8 p.m.
