HEAR members have told us that connecting pan equality and cross sector in London can help their priorities for housing rights, decent homes and good neighbourhoods.

HEAR are holding an event to start building a Net Map of London’s Housing activists and projects:

Monday 22nd February, 10am (arrivals) 10.30-11.30

Net Mapping Housing Activists

An introduction to Net Mapping for sharing and solidarity.

We have come together to work across our equality networks to build the NetEquality project, exploring how digital tools can help address some of the issues we are facing.

We know from our members that there is a stronger need than ever to find out information and share resources. We think that mapping our relationships and sharing expertise / resources / information can help to address inequalities by increasing opportunities for solidarity and strengthening campaigns.

For this weeks theme we are focusing on Housing, and what we can share and learn from other people working for this human right.

What will you get out of this event?

  • Learn more about NetMapping
  • Share and find out knowledge
  • Share and find out about connections
  • Join a community who actively share using digital tools
  • Meet other people to work together across-equality specialisms

Join us to put into practice working together and connecting pan-equality, to build solidarity and strengthen our campaigns!

Your details will be added to a private Net Map. Event will run from 10.30-11.30. You can join from 10 and there will also be time afterwards for questions and networking. HEAR is able to reimburse expenses incurred to overcome digital exclusion for user-led projects and experts by experience (details at the bottom of the page).

COVID 19 has shown that policies for the most at risk and excluded, like the Everyone In scheme, are deliverable and practical and that London can take the lead. The Grenfell fire provides a learning opportunity to prioritise people over profit, and where statutory must do better for communities after emergencies, so London can Build Back Better and continue to be a world leading city. Changes in working practices and lifestyle brought about during the pandemic have impacted on London high streets and property markets in unimaginable ways. Could London becoming the UK’s second Human Rights City mean London is a better home all Londoners?

HEAR, therefore, are co-producing and planning a series of events and a hustings during the week starting Monday 19th April on Decent Homes as a Human Right? to which the main London Mayoral candidates have been invited to particpate in a hustings

We will pay user-led projects and experts by experience to deliver workshops and presentations during this week of events, and would be keen to hear from members what they want, need and can offer. Please get in touch with your suggestions
