NewCities presents: New Housing Solutions LIVE

July 14, 2020 @ 12:00 am - July 16, 2020 @ 12:00 am EDT

New Housing Solutions Live

Last year, the inaugural New Housing Solutions drew more than 200 public officials, entrepreneurs, policy experts, and activists to discuss solutions to North America’s mounting housing affordability crisis and identify paths forward.

For this second edition, we had to do things a little differently…
We are proud to present New Housing Solutions LIVE on July 14-16, 2020. This 3-day event is the first international NewCities conference to take place entirely virtually.

The pandemic has only exacerbated the challenges around housing relative to affordability, health and community. More than ever, we believe it essential to rethink housing. Hence our goal to convene leaders from cities, industry, community organizations, and researchers devising innovative solutions. Request your invitation now.
