Audio quality improves after 12 minutes.
Three international speakers joined the final plenary session on Friday 30 August to examine housing policies from around the world. What can Australia learn from like-minded countries when it comes to national approaches to housing our communities? Canada has a similar federated system of government and a national strategy, Ireland has responded to the Global Financial Crisis with the ambitious ‘Rebuilding Ireland’ program and New Zealand is embarking on a Wellbeing Budget, putting vulnerable people at its centre. In this significant international plenary panel, we hear about each country’s national approach to housing before we examine lessons to be learned for Australia.
