A space for reflection aimed at analyzing housing policies from a social and environmental perspective.

The CHAIR IN DIGNIFIED AND SUSTAINABLE HOUSING was born in 2021, as result of the collaboration between Metropolitan House Foundation and the Barcelona School of Management of Pompeu Fabra University. 

The chair constitutes, for our Foundation, the central axis of knowledge contribution, in line with our founding purposes in the real estate sector, through a space for reflection from a social, environmental and economic perspective. 

Specifically, The Chair has the following objectives: 

  • Generate and develop knowledge about housing policies from social, environmental, economic, financial, fiscal and management perspectives. All of them aimed at improve the quality of life of citizens and preserving the environment, as well as promoting the efficiency and sustainability of the real estate sector. 
  • Develop activities for the transfer and dissemination of the knowledge generated, from congresses and conferences, the publication of informative articles or the preparation of case studies, among others. 
  • Develop activities related to the training and qualification of professionals in the real estate sector from the creation of training programs, internships in real estate companies and any other activity that enhances their professional development.
