About this event

People and Homes Conference 2021 comes at a critical moment for Wales.
From the trauma of the past year has emerged vital lessons for the future. As we head into the next Welsh Government term there are unique opportunities to get to the root of Wales’s housing emergency.

Held digitally over two days, People and Homes Conference 2021 focuses on what really matters with a packed schedule of amazing speakers, including:

  • George Monbiot, Guardian journalist, author and activist, and Beth Stratford, fellow at the New Economics Foundation and co-founder of the London Renters’ Union, present a range of proposals to address the fundamental issue of land affordability that drives the housing crisis;
  • Chloe Timperley, author of Generation Rent, on the roots of the housing crisis and its shameful impact;
  • And many more: View the People and Homes Conference 2021 programme here.

Our keynotes and break out sessions have been designed to equip you with the right tools to combat the housing emergency. You will be able to tailor the event to best suit your interests by choosing the most relevant break out sessions. We hope to see you there.
