Futures for Public Housing: A Dialogue with International and Local Housing Stakeholders

Light refreshments will be provided.
Free.

We're facing seemingly intractable housing challenges in the Lower Mainland. At times it seems there is little hope for maintaining, let alone enhancing public housing in our region. But if we drop the dominant narratives of a likely bleak future, what can we imagine in the space of possibilities for public, social and co-op housing? Are some paths into the future more desirable than others, and if so how can we influence decision-makers to steer into these desirable directions?

In this highly interactive facilitated session, we use a collaborative transformative scenario planning approach to respond to the questions above. Join us for an event that convenes leaders in public housing including policy-makers, politicians, the private and non-profit sector, tenants, academics and activists for an afternoon of dialogue and practical discussion. We will have the unique opportunity of being joined by international housing experts who will help us put our regional public housing trends and issues into a global perspective, perhaps giving us new ideas and strategies for moving forward.

Participation is by invitation. We are happy to extend the invitation to you and / or your representative.

Please RSVP by May 17.  For further enquiries, please contact futureofpublichousing@gmail.com.
