Emerging Leaders Caucus 

Tuesday 26 June 2018, 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm AEST

Sponsored by

 

 

The Emerging Leaders Caucus is presented in partnership with the Australasian Housing Institute. The caucus is for ambitious young housing and homelessness professionals who seek to play a leading role in the future of the social and affordable housing sector.  The Caucus will provide an opportunity to step away from everyday business and join your peers to debate, discuss and learn about key skills that are essential to lead a successful organisation with a social purpose.

The caucus will focus on the skills you need to shine as a leader as well as equipping you with the tools to excel at the art of verbal communication. However brilliant your idea, unless you can communicate with stakeholders including funders, policy makers, the media or your staff – the idea loses potential.

You will hear from experts in the field such as Rebecca Oelkers, Alex Notay and Jenny Stokes, and also get the opportunity to contribute your own ideas

Registration is open to those under 35 who have an ambition to progress in the social/affordable housing or homelessness services. Your discipline is irrelevant. We welcome asset managers, development staff, support service providers, tenancy managers and people in all areas of the housing and homelessness sectors.  Don’t miss this opportunity to network with future leaders of the housing and homelessness sector.

Agenda 2030 and the New Urban Agenda:  Implications for Housing in Australia

Tuesday 26 June 2018, 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm AEST

The United Nations has achieved three groundbreaking agreements in recent years which, if implemented, will move the world to greater environmental sustainability and greater social justice.  The 2014 Paris Agreement, the 2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the 2016 New Urban Agenda (NUA) agreements have major implications for urban life and particularly how access to housing contributes to quality of life, social justice and sustainability.  The supply of affordable housing is the life blood of any city or human settlement and social and affordable housing providers can play a key role in determining the future of urban living.

As a signatory to the New Urban Agenda, Australian government is committed to deliver these aspirations from the NUA.  As Community Housing Providers and partner agencies we have a unique contribution to make to the achievement of the human right to adequate housing.  The new Urban Agenda provides a detailed approach to SDG 11 and more generally describes how all the SDGs will be achieved in Australia’s urban environments.

With presentations from Greg Budworth, Vice Chair UN Habitat, General Assembly of Partners and Sonja Duncan, Director, SD Environmental Management and Consultant to NSW Office of the Environment and Heritage Sustainability Advantage Program, this Caucus is an unmissable opportunity for those wishing to progress the right to adequate housing in Australia leveraging the community housing sector.

Aboriginal Caucus

The Aboriginal Caucus is an essential opportunity for people working in the Aboriginal community housing sector, in particular CEOs and managers working in the sector.  International speaker Rosanna McGregor Cariboo, Friendship Society, British Columbia, Canada will speak about the Canadian Indigenous Housing sector, drawing comparisons to the Australian experience and providing practice advice on how those in the sector can maximise their impact and be agents for change.

The Caucus will feature a workshop session outlining the sector’s view on housing and homelessness priorities and making detailed recommendations to feed in to Aboriginal Housing Office’s strategy.

The Caucus will also serve as the platform to launch the next phase of the sector’s industry body – the Aboriginal Community Housing Industry Association or ACHIA for short – providing an overview of activities to date, accountability within the sector and the plans and priorities for ACHIA moving forward.

Finally, Charles Northcote will provide experiences from New Zealand and BlueCHP in making property development work for Aboriginal communities using examples and exploring the pitfalls.

This informative event is a must for all those working in the Aboriginal Community Housing Sector. 

Don’t miss out on your place, book here now! Price to attend is $100 ex GST per person.
