On June 7 representatives from political parties were invited to a debate on how to see all New Zealanders well housed.

Hosted by Community Housing Aotearoa, Te Matapihi, The Salvation Army, NZ Council of Christian Social Services, Platform and Prefab NZ, the debate will focus on what is required to end the housing crisis in New Zealand…
The event, organised as part of CHA’s Impact Conference, will see the politicians asked a series of questions about how to “move the needle” in the right direction to see all New Zealanders well housed.
Expert commentators Hurimoana Nui Dennis, from Te Puea Marae, Major Campbell Roberts of the Salvation Army and Stephen Selwood, of Infrastructure NZ, will ask follow-up questions and give their view on whether the responses would “move the needle” in the right direction.

The debate was part of the Community Housing Aotearoa conference. A report on Human Rights Commissioner David Rutherford's keynote is here.

If you are interested in the issue of housing affordability you might like to take part in our current HiveMind debate “Making Housing Affordable: How can we crack it?” which is running until Friday 9 July.
