Amplifying New Housing Solutions
August 24, 2020 — Highlight, The Big Picture
Population growth, mass migration, climate change, a global pandemic, and a civil rights movement have pushed cities around the world to rethink how they can provide a more accessible, affordable, safe housing that fosters health, happiness, and community.
NewCities’ first virtual event, New Housing Solutions LIVE, aimed to respond to the need for new tools, partnerships, and approaches, to address the housing crisis.
Many bold, innovative, and quality solutions emerged from the exchange between a diverse group of experts and engaged participants. This editorial series seeks to harness the creativity put forward at the event, add pertinent voices to the debate, and preserve the momentum generated from the discussions, taking concepts one step further.
