CHIA Chair Michael Lennon has been asked to take part in an innovative community engagement initiative that aims to connect everyday Australians with decision-makers and experts and develop solutions to key issues.
The not-for-profit Australian Futures Project is running the #WTF (What’s the Future?) project over four weeks this month, covering four key issues facing Australians: the energy crisis; the future of work; housing affordability; and, thriving kids.
On Monday, October 23, Mr Lennon will be one of eight housing affordability experts fielding questions from the public via various #WTF social media channels. The public will then be invited to contribute their solutions to the issues, which will be added to a report that brings together the facts and discussion and will be used to inform a roundtable debate by decision-makers.
Community organisations will then be funded to act on solutions.
CHIA members and stakeholders are encouraged to be part of the debate. Go to the #WTF website for details on how to take part.
