Journal 1 for ‘Yes, We Rent!’: Mataro’s first steps
Short description
UIA Expert Nils Scheffler explains that “so far, no serious challenges for the project have arisen. There is a quite strong political and administrational support of the project, cross-department working and the collaboration of the main stakeholders of the project is taking up. The concrete target beneficiaries and users of the flats of the ‘Yes, We Rent!’ housing scheme still need to be clarified. This is crucial as they are supposed to become members of the ‘Yes, We Rent!’ housing cooperative and are key persons with whom the cooperative is to be developed.”
