Are we dreaming? Working together to make low carbon, affordable communities a reality

Back to schedule

Session Description

An experiential workshop to explore the value of community-led housing in the UK and how, by equipping communities with the skills and tools they need to develop their own homes, we can create long-term social, economic and environmental benefit. The session will focus on the action needed to progress this booming movement, including the crucial role of social impact investors.

The content of the workshop will revolve around the findings from the One Planet Affordable Living (OPAL) action research project, funded by the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust. The teams from Bioregional and Transition by Design will cover the challenge OPAL adopted and the approach they have created to up-skill citizens to work with housing professionals and the wider construction sector
