Edge Ecobuild debate - How can the economics of housing serve the needs of the people?

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018 | Debates

ecobuild-housing-economics-debate-1The imbalances and inequalities of the housing market have been well documented. It is our collective responsibility to meet the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 11 by 2030 to ensure access for all to adequate, safe and affordable housing. Are we ignoring the economics of housing? Are there more effective ways of providing for all, retaining quality and delivering quantity? Is the British dream’ of homeownership a chimera? Do we have responsible leadership to overcome the problems? This session will explore challenging and new solutions to the problem. We will invite the audience to contribute their own suggestions and by the session end we will identify three key recommendations as the most universally applicable.
