How can a big collaboration between economists, architects, businesses and community create better housing solutions for South Australia? All it takes is some collaborative big thinking, argues Shelter SA. Together with architect, innovator and policy researcher, Indy Johar, this panel will show how citizens can get involved and lead the way to building our future cities.
