An intergenerational visioning of affordable housing in a regional context

Project Details

Housing affordability has been identified as a priority for the regional townships of Echuca-Moama in Victoria. Pressure from people moving from Melbourne to the regions in response to COVID-19 lockdowns, is but one factor that has forced the costs of renting and buying up. On the pathway to finding solutions for this, is understanding residents’ concerns and experiences, and engaging residents in solution generation. This project employs mixed methods, with the aim of engaging key groups of interest in Echuca Moama (older people, First Nations people and school leavers) in the question of what affordable housing means to them. This is the first project of its kind in the region.
