    Is there a true alternative to fully funded public housing models to deliver affordable housing at scale?
    Is there a private housing model that truly delivers on affordable and diverse housing?

    Come and join us find to learn and maybe help answer these key questions.


    RDA SydneyΒ andΒ EAROPH AustraliaΒ have the pleasure to convene this webinar that will explore opportunities for housing innovation. We will hear from thought leaders in the public sector, and private sector providers pursuing a range of innovative housing solutions. There will be an opportunity for exchange with EAROPH’s interstate and international members spanning the Asian region.

    Australia’s major cities, led by places like Sydney and Melbourne,Β  are facing an intensifying housing crisis with multiple causes, which are reinforced but the strength of housing as a wealth asset. With home values significantlyΒ exceeding $500k in all capitals except Darwin, and the median income only $54,890 (ABS data 2020-2021), it is clear that home ownership for those not on the 'property ladder' already is further away than ever.

    While the Australian Government, through the National Housing Accord, and the state governmentsΒ  are looking to accelerate housing delivery and increase density, are the conventional development models sufficient? or are a greater range and diversity of solutions required?

    The demographics of what was considered a typical household has changed significantly over the last decades, and home ownership has been decreasing among the younger generations.

    How can we increase housing diversity and provide genuinely affordable homes? How do we achieve impact in the short- and medium-term, not just the longer-term? And how do we tackle rental affordability?

    Importantly, how can you as aΒ policy maker, housing providers,Β designer and/or developersΒ learn from experiences in other cities and statesΒ and overseas?


    This webinar is a great opportunity to learn aboutΒ the new models and approaches from leaders in the housing policy and delivery space as we all confront the ever growing housing crisis. You willΒ hear directly fromΒ leading public bodies involved in housing delivery in Australia, such asΒ Homes NSW,Β Homes Victoria,Β Landcom, etc. and the innovative private sector responses from trailblazers such as Urbanly,Β Assemble,Β invida,Β Agency for Design Strategy, includesignΒ and Origen Architects.

    It is also an opportunity toΒ pose the difficult questions and have a conversation with fellow colleagues working to make our housingΒ more affordable and aΒ better fit our evolving community's needs.Β 


    Please pay AUD 5, except for speakers,Β via this the ticket selection at the top of the pageΒ (the small registration feelΒ helps cover the IT costs of running the event on Zoom)
