All over London, people are coming together to take a leading and lasting role in delivering affordable, sustainable homes. This series of discussions explores how the principles underpinning the growing community led housing movement can be delivered at scale.
Join politicians, policy makers, developers, housing associations, financiers, industry experts and residents to examine the challenges and opportunities for shaking up the way housing is both developed and managed.
This is about residents partnering with industry to take control of the decisions that matter to them and developing viable housing models that are publicly supported, democratically controlled and with the benefits protected in the long-term.
Watch again, be inspired and gain an insight into how we can be Doing Housing Differently.
All sessions are now available to watch.
