How many square meters do you live in? Was it difficult to find? If so, you're not alone. Housing has become one of the biggest issues for many in Europe's capitals. This is not only due to urbanisation and migration to urban areas; real estate has become one of the most attractive investment opportunities – and it's becoming increasingly global. We started to investigate housing and its economic actors in 2018. By 2019, our investigation went Europe-wide. Now we have published hundreds of articles with the media partners in our network of urban journalists. The network is a continuation of the investigation "Cities for Rent", a collaborative project investigating corporate landlords in Europe. It was prompted by the Arena Housing Project, and created following the Dataharvest conference in 2019. Today, we are still pushing the housing investigation forward. We can show where to start. In this hands-on session we focus on what we have learned and on the mistakes we have made. We will also present you with the data on housing, and explain which data are hard to find.
