Climate change, homelessness and housing forum
Tue. 18 October 2016, 9:30 am – 4:30 pm AEDT
Australian Red Cross, NCCARF Vulnerable Communities Network (VCN), University of Central Queensland and the Victorian Council of Social Service are pleased to present the Climate change, homelessness and housing forum to be hosted at Red Cross, 23-47 Villiers Street, North Melbourne from 9.30 – 4.30 on Tuesday 18 October. Bookings for this forum are strictly limited.
Climate change related impacts are on the rise and will disproportionately impact some of our most vulnerable community members, including people facing homelessness and/or living in poor quality housing. We are bringing together practitioners, researchers, advocates, and policy-makers to introduce and develop thinking on the intersection of climate change, social disadvantage, homelessness and poor quality housing, with a view to initiating strategies for building community resilience.
