Event description

Description

The City projects that over 700,000 people will be living in Boston by 2030. Increased demand for housing leads to increased housing costs, which can contribute to a number of issues and disruptions. Additionally, displacement of families, caused by economic and environmental forces, is exacerbated by the limited supply of affordable, family-oriented housing units.


The Sasaki Foundation is a recognized leader in facilitating research initiatives and supporting innovative strategies to improve housing affordability, promote a more diverse housing stock, and address gentrification and displacement. Join our team of housing experts for a lively panel discussion and networking event in the Incubator at Sasaki.


- What are the challenges and opportunities in pioneering innovative housing models and systems to improve affordability, promote a diverse housing stock, and address gentrification and displacement?
- How can we accelerate the pace of innovation in the housing sector to foster inclusion and equity across Boston neighborhoods?
- How can we lower barriers facing low-income tenants in the Boston metropolitan area?
- How can we improve public health through new housing and community designs?
- How can design be used to help keep people in their homes and communities (e.g., community land trusts, zoning, accessory dwelling units, re-parcellation of land)?
- What are opportunities to incorporate resilience strategies for buildings or education for residents into building retrofits or new construction?


Panelists include:

Taylor Cain, Mayor's Housing Innovation Lab
Jennifer Gilbert, Kuehn Charitable Foundation
Nick Kelly, MIT PhD Candidate
Bridgette Wallace, G|Code House
Luc Schuster, Boston Indicators (Moderator)
