Sustainability Starts at Home: Affordable Housing and Barriers to Equity

The Sustainability Series is a monthly networking forum for the public to learn and discuss how local Front Range universities, business, not-for-profit organizations, and governmental agencies have incorporated and defined sustainability in innovative and progressive ways.

Our topic this month is: Sustainability Starts at Home: Affordable Housing and Barriers to Equity in the Denver Region

What do sustainability and affordable housing have in common? The health and vibrancy of our community and environment of course! While providing housing for all sectors of our community is an important social justice goal, the benefits of affordable housing extend far beyond the occupants of the home to include much broader community outcomes. When done well, it has a ripple effect that reaches across multiple sectors of the community. On May 6th, three panelists,
moderated by Marjo Curgus, will explore the rising cost of housing in Denver, the role the public and private sector play in housing development, and recent
successes in integrating housing and sustainability goals.

• Speakers:
Chuck Perry, Perry Rose
Dr. Carrie Makarewicz, University of Colorado Denver, College of Architecture
and Planning
Dace West, Mile High Connects
Moderated by: Marjo Curgus
