We’re excited to announce our programme for day 2 of our Disruption and Innovation in Housing in the Devolved Nations event which takes place on 16 November.

We’re excited to announce that James Ehrlich, Founder of ReGen Villages will be our keynote speaker for day two of this year’s Disruption and Innovation in Housing in the Devolved Nations conference on 16 November, sponsored by Openreach and Futr.

During his session, James will share insight into designing regenerative, technology-based communities. We will discover how communities of the future might look and feel, and what risks and opportunities need to be considered if these communities are to be created successfully.

It’s more important than ever to consider what the future of homes and neighbourhoods will look like. As we emerge from the pandemic, we need to really consider what people need moving forward as we enter a new era.
