This event has now passed

Across the festival’s main and supporting virtual stages, you’ll hear from expert keynotes; get involved with top level debates; and speak with influential innovators from across the sector. There will be something for everyone – plus more exciting opportunities than ever to network at sessions like the Aico sponsored afternoon tea, and dedicated meet ups.

We’ll be focusing on three main themes:


  • Proud to be a professional and the role of housing practitioners as key workers
  • Managing organisational change alongside staff mental health and wellbeing

People and place

  • A place to call home – learning from the pandemic and addressing Scotland’s housing need moving forward
  • Our housing emergency – how do we make homelessness the next public health priority?
  • Climate change and a new green deal for housing


  • Radical Scotland – how do we build the institutions we need for the 21st century?
  • Planning for 2050 and the creation of 20-minute communities

This year’s festival will connect you with housing professionals from all across Scotland, bringing you the largest and most diverse network to learn, share and collaborate together.
