Housing Summit 20 June 2018 presented by NZGBC

We’ve all sat in conferences that are all hammer and no nails. And while we sit around in large meeting rooms, our homes still aren’t good enough, and haven’t been for years.

No longer should our fellow New Zealanders have to live in damp, cold, unhealthy homes.

We know how to build warm, dry homes for our whānau. We know that the time for talk is over, and now’s the time for action.

We have a great line up of exciting, inspiring and diverse national and international speakers.
