A free public event being held at the University of Adelaide on Tuesday 11 June will address some of the key issues impacting on the future of Australia's housing.
The forum raises significant social and economic questions about housing, with our ageing population, relentless suburban expansion and rising incidence of low-income "housing stress" all contributing to an increasingly uncertain quality of life.
Called Older. Poorer. Denser?, the forum is part of the University of Adelaide's Research Tuesdays free series of public seminars.
The event will address such issues as urban sprawl, high-density living, surging housing costs, the societal implications of homelessness, and the expectations of Baby Boomers for old-age accommodation.
The forum panellists are:
Professor Andrew Beer (Director of the Centre for Housing, Urban and Regional Planning, University of Adelaide).
Nathan Paine (Executive Director, Property Council of Australia (SA Division)).
Dr Debbie Faulkner (Research Fellow, Centre for Housing, Urban and Regional Planning, University of Adelaide).
Professor Emeritus Chris Paris (Research Fellow, Centre for Housing, Urban and Regional Planning, University of Adelaide, and Emeritus Professor of the University of Ulster).
Associate Professor Susan Oakley (forum facilitator) (Head of Gender Studies and Social Analysis, and member of the Centre for Housing, Urban and Regional Planning, University of Adelaide).
