Study visit to the 'Annual Conference of the European Federation of National Organisations Working with the Homeless (FEANTSA)', in Porto, to deepen knowledge about European policies in this field.

Description of the visit:

Representatives of the RED CALLE project participated in the "2019 FEANSTA Policy Conference: Feantsa Towards 2030", held on 30 and 31 May 2019 in Porto.


The main objective of the trip was to get to know and deepen the policies aimed at homeless people in European countries, in order to then be able to debate what was learned in terms of the Latin American reality in general and of each country that is part of the Network in particular, as well as to present the Latin American experiences in order to enrich the global vision of the European partners.

Attended events:

Participation in the FEANSTA 2019 Policy Conference: Towards 2030, held on 30 and 31 May 2019 in Porto

Main products:

  • Systematisation of the learning from each visit to be disseminated among the members of the Network.
  • Consolidated report of the mission.
  • Dissemination through the ADELANTE Programme Website and RRSS.


The study visit was highly valued by the participants, especially the lessons learned from European experiences on different approaches to the care of homeless people. Thanks to this visit, the members of the Network have now methodological tools that can be adapted to the national context and which, besides providing a comparative framework allowing for the promotion of reforms from a structural point of view, will also help them coordinate the work with the various actors around the care of homeless people.
