Why Housing Justice and Climate Justice Should Be Considered Together

The European Action Coalition for the Right to Housing and to the City (EAC) is a European network of more than 35 grassroots collectives from 20 different countries. Its purpose is to support and develop common actions across Europe and facilitate collaboration between movements that fight locally. The fight against evictions is at the heart of the actions supported by the EAC. Since 2022, tenants’ unions, anti-eviction groups and groups fighting homelessness are facing increasing difficulties due to the energy crisis and the governmental solutions that are implemented to face the climate crisis. Betavatzi will present and discuss these challenges.
