Event description

Description

The Housing Outside the Box: Creative, Affordable Options for Healthy Housing Symposium will bring community members together to discuss the opportunities that exist for creative solutions for affordable, appropriate housing in our community. With a focus on sustainable, people-friendly solutions, we will hear from a variety of speakers sharing their knowledge and expertise, and have plenty of opportunity to learn and share ideas between professionals, researchers, older adults, students, community planners, and many others.

We will explore creative solutions that will allow people to stay in their existing homes by sharing with renters and housemates, approaches to small-scale shared housing such as co-housing and co-ops, and small scale development such as adding cottages or tiny houses on wheels.

Out goal is that all attendees will leave the workshop with information, resources, and connections needed to move forward with opportunities to create sustainable and resilient housing solutions in our community. This will be a practical approach to support our community by focusing on solutions that are available to us now!
