Hovels, Havens and Homes: Just Housing and Healthy Communities

We enthusiastically sing Dave Dobbyn’s de-facto national anthem, ‘Welcome Home’, but how can our homes be places of welcome when many are old, cold, damp, and overcrowded? Is home ownership still a realistic aspiration? Is it possible to reconstruct our society for more equitable housing outcomes?  To what extent might the Christian tradition offer new ways of responding to these questions – both conceptually and practically?

Come along to hear how people’s faith motivates them to explore creative house-design, new patterns of living, and innovative policy as responses to New Zealand’s housing crisis.
