The NHC aims to present sessions in line with policy development and pertinent housing priorities, sparking diverse, evidence-based discussion. For this reason, a wide range of researchers and practitioners have submitted abstracts, which are now being processed and incorporated into the #NHCDarwin program. The presentations these feed into may include standard speaker sessions, panels or workshops and Think Tank sessions. This enables a tailored, innovative program that maximises audience participation and keeps topics alive and engaging.
- 2019 topics include
Indigenous housing and homelessness
Housing as social infrastructure
Partnering with the private sector
Best practice in integrated housing support/tenancy management
Local government and housing policy
Affordable housing construction and design (urban, regional, international)
Social impact investment
Housing for people with disability
Financing affordable housing
Population growth, cities and decentralisation
Growth of the private rental sector
Sustainable housing and energy costs
Alternative affordable housing models
Housing and ageing
Other (e.g. housing for refugees, regulation of the affordable housing industry)
This list is not exhaustive. We have invited the full spectrum of thought leadership and solutions in housing and cities. The conference plays an important role in guiding national dialogue, and we seek out a diversity of ideas in our programming.
