IFHP is a membership based organisation and we have private and corporate members from all over the world.
Who can become member?
Everybody with an interest in making cities better for people. The members are a mix of professionals, academics, organisations, housing agencies, public entities, corporates, students and individuals. Different members have different motivations to join IFHP, but all share the passion of making cities better for people.
The mixed and international membership base is what makes IFHP a true global community. We are always happy to grow our network and invite new members.
