Auckland’s housing crisis is arguably one of the most pressing issues of our time. In response, a group of 130 public and private sector industry stakeholders met at a not-for-profit gathering, on 1 August 2017 – the first Auckland Housing Summit.
The Summit was organized by a group of five key players:
- Leonie Freeman – thehomepage.nz
- Anna Crosbie – Russell McVeagh
- Robyn Phipps – Massey University
- Kitty Rothschild – Knight Frank
- Paul Gilberd – New Zealand Housing Foundation.
Collective action is the foundation of Leonie Freeman’s strategy “A Comprehensive Solution to Solve Auckland’s Housing Crisis.” The Summit provided an essential platform for debate, ideas, direct action and the identification of key accountabilities, responsibilities and timeframes.
The findings and outcomes of the Summit are the first steps towards a collective plan aimed at solving the crisis. Read the full report to find out more about this important initiative.
