Think Tank generates ideas for affordable housing

Thirty experts from the housing sector, ACT and federal government agencies, community organisations and CSIRO research teams took part in our Affordable Housing Think Tank held on 8 April to identify bold and innovative ideas for the delivery of affordable housing at Ginninderra.

Ideas from the day and those generated through further research and community engagement will be tested and evaluated to inform a living strategy document that guides CSIRO’s approach to affordable housing at the site.
