Don’t miss this year’s Living Future 2021 Conference where you will catch HED’s very own, Susan King, and other leaders and visionaries dedicated to “deep green sustainability and creating transformative and scalable impact” to the built environment.
This year’s virtual conference is focused on themes of inclusion + unity. Susan will be speaking on Friday, April 23rd, on the Advocacy in Action: Unifying a Multi-Faceted Approach to Solving the Housing Crisis at Scale session.
In this workshop, Susan and other industry experts will share their experience and collective wisdom around solving the housing crisis. Attendees will learn about the concept of Diversity in Density, explore the latest in prefabrication and modular construction, understand existing financial tools and mechanisms for financing affordable housing, and identify the barriers in our financial mechanism for funding affordability and strategize ways to remove these barriers.
