      In our previous article on the youth’s relationship with housing, we provided you with general trends on where young people live and their perceptions of housing.

Today, we present you with the first three typical profiles, which give an insight into the different visions of housing that are cohabiting in the new generation.

The effects of environmental disturbances and the reduction of energy resources have led to a profound transformation in the organisation of the region and life as it unfolds there. Half as many residents, virtually no automobiles, which have given way to low-tech transportation...plus local solidarity initiatives, breathable air and stronger ties to nature and biological rhythms. That is the revolutionary scenario described by Institut Momentum, a think tank specialising in degrowth, in its report Bioregions 2050.
