Open Call: ‘Creating Homes for Tomorrow’

Within the 2019/20 educational program, CANactions School travels to 3 metropoles in western, northern and eastern Europe and explores their innovative approaches for creating more livable neighborhoods. Based on the findings, we develop new strategies for locally specific and globally relevant questions, considering spatial, economic, social and political measures.

The program is exposed to the housing context of the three European cities that are widely acclaimed for their high living quality—Amsterdam, Zurich and Helsinki, and absorbs their practices to specifically address the housing challenges of the rapidly expanding Eastern European metropolis of Kyiv.

—Work on a real-life housing case in focus teams, addressing various aspects of housing design and development;
—Study visits to best practice housing projects sites and meeting their authors/initiators;
—Interaction with local experts, including host city administration, architecture, and planning offices, educational institutions and civil society representatives.

The program is targeted to graduates and professionals with a specific interest to explore challenges in urban development, particularly in the context of urban housing production and consumption. In particular, we are looking for: young professionals from the fields of Architecture, Urban Design, Urban Planning, and Civil Engineering; critical thinking researchers and professionals with background in social sciences (Economics, Political Sciences, Sociology, Human Geography, Anthropology or other).

All documents should be submitted in English.
