This AHURI one-day conference will examine the affordability and liveability in our cities incorporating the latest AHURI research on housing and urban issues.

Almost two thirds of Australians live in our capital cities and that percentage is projected to grow considerably over the next 40 years. Affordability continues to be a significant issue at all stages of the housing continuum, from those living in social housing, through to private renters, and home owners. Outside the capitals, there are new and growing cities in all states and territories that are also facing affordability and liveability challenges associated with that growth. Our next AHURI conference, to be held in Melbourne – Australia’s fastest growing city – on Thu 29 June, will focus on the importance of affordable housing to developing and sustaining productive and liveable cities.
