HOUSING PASTS AND HOUSING FUTURES

4th May 2017 Sheffield Hallam University Charles St Sheffield S1 2NH 9.30 - 2.00

Everyone needs a place to live both now and in the future. Integrated, inclusive and sustainable housing is integral to the future of our neighbourhoods. Debates surrounding how housing provision shapes our neighbourhoods therefore have a universality which have global reach across a range of disciplines. Yet at the same time, housing providers today across all tenure groups face unprecedented challenges. More specifically, how can we use the cumulative knowledge at SHU to explore and address these challenges? The Housing and Neighbourhoods Research Group invites you to explore these are other issues at our launch event on 4th May 2017. Uniting SHU wide expertise and knowledge on the day, we will critically consider as a collective the past and future of housing provision at the local and global scale and, more specifically, its relevance in shaping the neighbourhoods.

On the day, we will warmly invite your views on how SHU's first Housing and Neighbourhoods Group may be developed in the months and years to come. As the gap between the rich and poor increases further, how might we seek to ensure affordable, safe, secure and appropriate housing is available to all at the neighbourhood level? How might increased globalisation be reconciled with the provision of energy efficient homes both now and in the future? How can we ensure housing rights for all are maximised so that our neighbourhoods are democratically run and well governed? What is the role of more bottom up and innovative research methods such as oral history and visual methods in providing counter narratives in today’s post truth society? We warmly your view on how the Housing and Neighbourhoods Group may address these - and many more issues - in the months and years to come.

We look forward to welcoming this special event on 4th May 2017 9.30 a.m. - 2.00 p.m.
