What: SHIFT Aotearoa 2019 conference: Kay Saville-Smith - Where from, where to
At the SHIFT Aotearoa conference in June 2019, Building Better Homes, Towns and Cities researcher Dr Kay Saville-Smith reflected on housing research and how we can have a better housing future. She says the New Zealand housing crisis is of our own making, and canvases a range of solutions, drawing across a wide range of evidence and practice, to stop making the problem worse and how it can be turned around.

What: SHIFT Aotearoa 2019 conference: Paul Hunt - Housing as a human right
At the SHIFT Aotearoa Conference in Wellington, in June 2019, Paul Hunt, the Chief Commissioner at the New Zealand Human Rights Commission, outlines a human rights approach to housing and provides a way forward for action in the New Zealand context. Paul introduces the concept of housing as a human right, and says that we need to refresh human rights in New Zealand for our times and our place. The right to a decent home is espoused in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which New Zealand helped to draft.

What: SHIFT Aotearoa 2019 conference: Pania Newton - Ihumātao
At the Building Better Homes, Towns and Cities co-hosted SHIFT Aotearoa conference in early June, Pania Newton talks about the struggle to protect the land at Ihumātao - a cause she sees as her life's purpose. Pania and her cousins created the SOUL (Save Our Unique Landscape) Campaign to resist Fletcher's development at Ihumātao, an area that was designated under urgency and without consultation as a "Special Housing Area". With family members and other supporters, Pania has occupied the land to protect it. Pania says she can not understand why Ihumātao has not been recognised as heritage worthy of protection in New Zealand. She says there is a bias toward protecting colonial built heritage over sites of indigenous significance.
