  • New Urban Agenda - HABITAT III Issue Paper – Housing: Security of tenure: housing is not adequate if its occupants do not have a degree of tenure security which
    guarantees legal protection against forced evictions, harassment and other threats.2
    • Availability of services, materials, facilities and infrastructure: housing is not adequate if its occupants do not
    have safe drinking water, adequate sanitation, energy for cooking, heating, lighting, food storage or refuse
    • Affordability: housing is not adequate if its cost threatens or compromises the occupants’ enjoyment of other
    human rights.
    • Habitability: housing is not adequate if it does not guarantee physical safety or provide adequate space, as
    well as protection against the cold, damp, heat, rain, wind, other threats to health and structural hazards.
    • Accessibility: housing is not adequate if the specific needs of disadvantaged and marginalized groups are
    not taken into account.
    • Location: housing is not adequate if it is cut off from employment opportunities, health-care services,
    schools, childcare centres and other social facilities, or if located in polluted or dangerous areas.
    • Cultural adequacy: housing is not adequate if it does not respect and take into account the expression of
    cultural identity.
  • Zero Carbon Housing
    CEPHEUS "Passive Houses are buildings which ensure a comfortable indoor climate in summer and in winter without needing a conventional heating system. To permit this, it is essential that the building's annual demand for space heating does not exceed 15 kWh/m2year. The minimal heat requirement can be supplied by heating the supply air in the ventilation system - a system that is necessary in any case. The standard has been named "Passive House" because the passive heat inputs delivered externally by solar irradiation through the windows and provided internally by the heat emissions of appliances and occupants essentially suffice to keep the building at comfortable indoor temperatures throughout the heating period. It is a part of the Passive House philosophy that efficient technologies are also used to minimize the other sources of energy consumption in the building, notably electricity for household appliances. The target of the CEPHEUS project is to keep the total final energy demand for space heating, domestic hot water and household appliances below 42 kWh/m2year".
  • Neighborhood as a sustainable ecosystem
  • Urban ecology
  • Coworking is a style of work that involves a shared working environment, often an office, and independent activity.

  • Our definition determines flexible housing as housing that can adapt to the changing needs of users. This definition is deliberately broad. It includes the possibility of choosing different housing layouts prior to occupation as well as the ability to adjust one’s housing over time. It also includes the potential to incorporate new technologies over time, to adjust to changing demographics, or even to completely change the use of the building from housing to something else.
  • smart ICT housing is an urban development vision to integrate multiple information and communication technology (ICT) solutions in a secure fashion to manage housing assets
  • “Arts and culture” is a broad term that needs to be refined to reflect local identity, goals, and resources. The demographics, local history, unique assets, traditions, and preferences of a community influence its definition of arts and culture and provide the context for reaching its goals in the future.
