Housing and the Built Environment (HBE) SIG

New Special Interest Group for 2016

Housing and the Built Environment Special Interest Group (HBESIG) is a new SIG that was approved in the June 2016 Board meeting.

The purpose of the HBESIG is:

  • To facilitate opportunity for exchange and collaboration between researchers, practitioners and service providers with an interest in housing and built environment research and practice.
  • To share knowledge, expertise, and interest in housing and built environment research and practice.
  • To identify future housing and built environment research directions, through the intersection of service providers, practitioners and researchers.
  • To provide advice to inform AAG’s advocacy position in relation to the diverse housing needs and desires of older Australians; and the impact of the built environment on the independence, health, wellbeing and quality of life of older Australians.
