Sydney’s housing crisis is not a short-term issue. It’s chronic, costing us billions of dollars in talent, productivity and innovation. 

At our Chronically Unaffordable Housing report launch, we put Sydney’s housing malaise and its many side effects in international context. In our member-exclusive briefing, we heard from Eamon Waterford and Estelle Grech on key report findings and NSW Premier Chris Minns on the state of Sydney’s housing, followed by a panel discussion with experts Anne Jolic, Nicole Gurran and Rebecca Pinkstone. We kept the conversation going at our public online event with Estelle Grech and Tim Moonen, sharing our research and solutions fo a more equitable Sydney.
