Slums, Social Housing and Tech Solutions

Cities,

Meetups are co-created events: Hosted and curated by amazing organizers from diverse tech communities; brought to you by Techfestival – open to all curious minds!

NB: Capacities are limited. Please RSVP to register, and arrive in good time to secure your spot!

Many developing countries are facing a housing deficit, and people worldwide find themselves in spaces unsuitable for living, with inadequate water supply and hygiene facilities. Private developers are hesitant to enter the field of social housing within slums, and governments often lack sufficient funds to ensure the public provision of social housing; mainly to the big young populations’ group unable to afford their homes. At the same time, cities are undergoing rapid growth and transformations.

In this Meetup, we look into ways in which financial and technological interventions can help to address such pressing issues, with a focus on emerging economies. We are hoping to foster an interdisciplinary knowledge exchange and visionary collaboration by connecting architects, private investors, startups, and government officials in this creative Meetup!
