Our housing challenges remain multifaceted and ever-enduring. And with each election comes the hope that our best days are ahead of us. This one is no different.

Come along to our 2023 Pre-election Housing Panel to hear from our four major political parties, Labour, National, ACT and Greens. Learn how each intends to lead the country towards housing solutions and increase opportunities in post-election New Zealand.

Session themes include

💙 The nuanced nature of housing and the balance between competing interests

💙 Using contemporary solutions to meet contemporary issues
