How can we ensure affordable, safe and sustainable housing for everyone in Australia?

Catch up on a week of discussions about housing and human settlements, hosted by the New Economy Network Australia (NENA) and Co-Housing Australia.

Topics Include:

* An overview of the housing crisis in Australia and its social justice implications

* An overview of the impact of housing and human settlements on Australia's ecosystems, biodiversity and bioregional health

* A deeper dive into the housing crisis – the foundations of Australian property law, capitalism, colonisation and notions of future value

* Success and failure - responding to Indigenous housing needs, rising homelessness, crisis accommodation, transition housing

* Caring for our most vulnerable – aged care, families, women, people with disabilities - across Indigenous and non-indigenous communities

* Positive responses - Indigenous peoples creating their own housing solutions, community housing, tiny/micro housing, co-living

* Sustainable responses - understanding the impacts of human settlements on the living world; rethinking urban, regional and rural housing developments, ecovillages and sustainable housing

* Innovative financing and investment for housing and human settlements in Australia
