Reimagining Tri-sector Models for Decent Housing

Day 1 - 5th Oct | 15:00 - 16:15

Location: Change Makers Stage

Redefining Value

Overview

Land is arguably Hong Kong’s most highly valued resource, and housing one of our most complex social issues. As a case study for innovative tri-sector partnerships, how can collaborative social housing models help alleviate the crisis? We delve into two current large-scale projects in a dialogue with civil society voices to dissect this wicked problem.

Learnings

  • Reveal the compounding factors underpinning local land value & housing supply
  • Showcase social housing efforts in progress between uncommon partners
  • Open up a candid dialogue between stakeholders on access, equity, affordability

Post Event Actions

  • Learn how tri-sector partnerships can be designed to tackle systemic issues
  • Understand how broader community development creates ripple effects
  • Consider how tri-sector collaboration could be applied to your issues of focus
