Call for papers - unlock net zero stage

This September, we make our return to live events with Housing 2021, the award-winning Chartered Institute of Housing’s annual conference and Europe’s leading housing festival.


The three-day conference will take place at COVID-safe Manchester Central on 7-9 September 2021.


With 8500+ attendees, 10 theatres, 500+ speakers, and 400+ sponsors and exhibitors over the three days – it is the biggest meeting place for the whole housing sector.


This year, we are launching the #unlocknetzero stage – an initiative to bring the housing sector together to discuss the practical aspects of achieving the UK net zero target and collaboratively find solutions to the challenges the housing sector faces.


The call for speakers is now open. This is your opportunity to share your research, best practise, case studies and resources. This is not about WHY. It is all about HOW.


Some of the themes we will discuss are:

How data and technology are essential to a low-carbon future?

How are we funding net zero?

How net zero and building safety work in parallel

The challenges of embodied carbon

How will we heat our homes in the future?

How our tenants and residents benefit and how we encourage net zero behaviour


If you would like to join a panel, present a case study or a keynote, contact Sarah Payling – for more information on the programme. If you are a commercial organisation you will be required to contribute as a sponsor or exhibitor.
