Affordable Housing, Geelong Sustainability

Do you despair about ever owning your own home? Here is your opportunity to find out about more affordable housing options from leading experts in urban planning and architecture.  Geelong Sustainability’s first Clever Living Seminar for 2019 will showcase a range of citizen-led housing developments where residents control the design of their own high quality, sustainable and collective housing.

The seminar will be held at the High Ground Dome of the Geelong Regional Library on Tuesday 5th March from 6.30-8.30pm.

We hear more from Geelong Sustainability’s President, Vicki Perrett.

“We are delighted to have three expert presenters with a wealth of local and international experience:  Katherine Sundermann, Lisa Garner and Tim Riley.

“Katherine Sundermann has worked on and researched European housing developments.

“Lisa Garner is a designer and researcher at Swinburne Centre for Urban Transition.

“And Tim Riley is the founder of Property Collectives, a citizen-led housing model that brings people together to develop homes at cost.”

“Members of some collectives have explored incorporating communal features like shared gardens, roof decks, laundries and bike storage,” states Tim.

Vicki continues “Geelong Sustainability wants to promote housing diversity in our region. Knowledge about what’s possible is vital to our clever and creative future. We believe Geelong can really lead the way towards more affordable eco housing and net zero carbon emissions.”
