We developed an online platform gewoonwonen.nu about how housing corporations can contribute to the housing crisis and they are part of the solution, not the problem. Our main message was a simple one, but one with ambition: “30,000 new social houses. It’s just possible.” On the platform you could find the manifesto, along with all the news, events and articles on the subject.
We were also present during the housing protests. We just handed out protest signs and buttons that were gratefully used and we received a lot of exposure on national and local TV. We will approach politicians directly and indirectly with the manifesto and remain active on social media until the special Gewoon Wonen Event where all the politicians involved will be present.
