At the General Assembly held on 3 June the COCEMFE GIRONA entity chose its new Board of Directors for the relaunch of the activity and address the challenges posed by the health, economic and social crisis caused by COVID-19.
Our colleague Andrés Labella assumes the presidency, with the intention of turning this new era of the entity into a social lab that implements the four axes of work that were decided in the conclusions of the I Congress on the Right to Personal Autonomy that took place in Barcelona in October 2019, in which the UNESCO Chair of Housing of the URV contributed to the presentation of two of the twenty participating posters.
The four axes are indivisible and aligned with the Convention of New York (2006): Promotion of rights, cities as a space for socialization, technology and the use of big data for the prevention and creation of effective policies.
The right to housing plays a fundamental role as a continent for independent life and the right to the family and as a shield for the protection of health, as has been seen. Therefore, the promotion of accessibility and new ways of life in the home, together with the promotion of the diversity of tenures, will be strategic lines of development to meet the SDGs of the 2030 Agenda in the light of the CDPD.
