Between April and May I have been on a European tour. While travel restrictions were in place still for most European nations, from my kitchen-cum-office and with the help of Zoom, I have been to Turin, Copenhagen and Tarragona. It has taken eight countries, 12 academics and journalists and resulted in an overview of the continent’s response to the COVID-19 crisis. It has been eye-opening. It has completely changed many of my preconceptions of housing policy and structures around the continent and shows me there is so much the nations from Europe can learn from one another.
