Day 5 final day of the virtual housing festival

We are super-excited about the final day and want to highlight the reasons why your attendance is essential!


9 of the biggest sessions saved for the finale.


Starting at 9 we have wellbeing in the workplace or raising the bar on housing quality, followed by a session on innovation to accelerate our COVID-19 activity or working with our partners to create communities fit for the 21C, late morning tune in for practical sessions in crisis management or a masterclass on achieving sustainable homes and communities.

After lunch at 13.30 we have the ‘Homes at the heart’ session and the final Housing Management session to discuss how we shift public attitudes to our sector.

Finally, don’t miss the Presidential address at 15.00 with Aileen Evans followed by this year’s housing film.

This is also your final opportunity to join some incredibly interesting debates across all the innovation hub sessions. Here’s a quick overview on these:
