** All sessions in Housing Week are online and are 90 minutes long. Each session will begin with short presentations by our speakers, then a panel discussion and time for Q&A with participants**

Join us for NENA's 2021 Housing Week, from 7-11 June.  Hear from practitioners and researchers from dozens of organisations, who are coming together to discuss the social justice and environmental sustainability issues of housing and human settlements in Australia.

NENA Housing Week will feature lunchtime and evening ONLINE seminars (Mon 7th to Thurs 10th), which will culminate in an online round table discussion (Friday 11th June) discussing the availability, affordability, design and sustainability of Australia's housing and human settlements. One of the goals of the Housing Roundtable discussion will be to identify key actions to include in NENA's Civil Society Strategy for a Wellbeing Economy.
