National Housing Conference wraps up

by 0 comments

The sixth annual National Housing Conference in Melbourne has come to an end, with key speakers addressing a range of hot topics on the changing housing landscape in Australia.

With an overarching theme called Housing in a new era: building the connections, the conference invited robust discussion on exploring the essential connections between housing, people, place, community and nation, and proposed innovative solutions and partnerships to guide Australia's approach to housing policy reform.

Key speakers included representatives of the Victorian Office of Housing, the Reserve Bank of Australia, community housing providers, residents, the private sector and non-government organisations, together with experts from both Australia and overseas.

Victoria’s minister for housing Richard Wynne said the conference signified the importance of home to our social, economic, spiritual and physical well-being, with housing affordability, homelessness, climate change and the global economic downturn all leading the political agenda.

“With a significant level of government investment in social housing and homelessness, there has never been a more critical time for the government and the private and not-for-profit sectors to work together,” Mr Wynne said.

“The conference provided an ideal setting for housing industry professionals and interested parties to further their understanding, exchange ideas and develop professional networks.”
