1 & 2 June 2023 - Stockholm, Sweden
FEANTSA Forum 2023: United in Times of Crisis
Deadline for Registrations: 15 May 2023
The FEANTSA Forum will replace the Annual Policy Conference. Our annual flagship event has evolved a lot over the years and no longer represents just policy. It’s the space to discuss the latest practices, strategies, research, services and policies with homeless services, housing providers, cities, researchers, foundations, think tanks, healthcare professionals, lawyers, ministries and much more! Join the 400 delegates in Stockholm this June to discuss and be inspired on how we can end homelessness in Europe.
FEANTSA members will be invited to our General Assembly on 1 June, and registrations for the Forum on 2 June will be open for everyone in our network. The FEANTSA Forum will include leading voices in the fight to end homelessness, site visits to local services in Stockholm and over 25 breakout sessions around different topics related to homelessness.
A Note About the Venue
The FEANTSA Forum will take place at Skogshem & Wijk, Hustegavägen 1, 181 90 Lidingö, in an island in the inner Stockholm archipelago, about 45 minutes to 1 hour away from Stockholm Central Station.
We have chosen this beautiful and tranquil location to create a different atmosphere for this year's Forum to foster connections and networking. Surrounded by nature and the sea, this will provide a more retreat-like experience with plenty of opportunities to reflect on our work around ending homelessness in Europe. In addition to all the usual elements of the FEANTSA Forum, this location has a heated outdoor swimming pool, yoga room, sauna and steam rooms, nature walks, pier walks, games room, gym, frisbee golf, a small beach, table tennis, indoor golf track, complimentary coffee and tea throughout your stay, spaces for ad-hoc meetings indoors and outdoors and much more.
As organisers, we highly recommend participants to book accommodation on site, or nearby the venue, as this is a remote venue. Similarly, for the Forum dinner, participants should consider booking the Forum dinners, as there is no other restaurant within walking distance of the venue.
