Kōrero for Change - Housing and the Built Environment Webinar Recording

The building and construction industry holds a pivotal role in helping to change the narrative around how disabled people are included. We will be calling on a disability expert to explain what ableism looks like in our urban landscape, and asking guest speakers,

"What is the role of housing and the built environment in the process of inclusion and belonging of people with disabilities?"

We will also be taking a closer look at robust accessibility legislation used in countries overseas.
