SDGs Seminar Series 2021 – Urban Resilience and Housing

This seminar addresses partnerships for the SDGs through two organisations grappling with housing questions - the Resilient Melbourne Office within the City of Melbourne and Compass Housing.

The seminar will hear about the experiences of both organisations and gain their insights into the complex task of building partnerships for the SDGs, with universities, and with wider government, private sector and community networks.

Urban Resilience and Housing - Seminar 4 in the GUSS research centres, Centre for Urban Research & Social and Global Studies Centre exploring the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals.

Safe and secure housing is one of the fundamental elements of human wellbeing and resilience. The SDGs address housing in various ways, including SDG 11 on cities and communities which has the aim of providing access for all to adequate, safe and affordable housing. Many organisations are grappling with the task of ensuring safe and affordable housing, including through partnerships that enable housing provision.

This seminar addresses partnerships for the SDGs through two organisations grappling with housing questions. The Resilient Melbourne Office within the City of Melbourne has operated a Housing Community Engagement program, to support housing initiatives that enhance Melbourne's resilience by improving housing quality through working with local communities. Compass Housing is a major NSW housing organisation that has embraced the SDGs and has built global partnerships to support greater housing provision. The seminar will hear about the experiences of both organisations and gain their insights into the complex task of building partnerships for the SDGs, with universities, and with wider government, private sector and community networks.

Hosted by Professor Jago Dodson, Director of the Centre for Urban Research with guests:
