Join Our Lecture on “Housing Affordability and Aspirations for Low- and Middle-Income Earners in Australia”

Are you keen to dive into housing affordability and how it relates to health, wellbeing, and overall quality of life? Join our online lecture on Friday, 24 March, from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm Jakarta time and gain insight into the topic with Professor Jenny Martin from Federation University Australia.

Safe, secure, and affordable housing is a basic human right. However, housing affordability and homeownership are now beyond the reach of many young people worldwide, with numerous solutions being offered, including various housing schemes and financial and tax incentives.

This lecture presents the results of an exploratory research project using quantitative and qualitative methods. A narrative approach produces a snapshot of current and future housing aspirations from the perspective of low-and-middle-income renters currently in government-subsidised rental accommodation in Australia.

A focus is on housing and homeownership aspirations, the built and social environment, income security, and views on shared equity homeownership. The thematic analysis identifies the main themes from the data highlighting the relationship between housing, income security, health and wellbeing, community and overall quality of life.

The e-certificate for participation is available. If you are interested in attending this event, RSVP by 22 March at this link. Click here for more information about the online lecture and Professor Jenny Martin.
