The country is in the grip of a housing shortage - we currently build half the number of homes we need each year. This panel discussion in partnership with Museum of Architecture will explore the necessity to build in volume but also to build sustainably for future generations. How can we speed up housebuilding while ensuring good design, minimising resource use and reducing the environmental impact of development? The panel of speakers will discuss sustainable housing from an economic, social and ecological perspective.

Speakers include:

- Pete Halsall, chief executive of Good Homes Alliance

- Richard Lavington, founder of Maccreanor Lavington Architects

- Sue Riddlestone, CEO and co-founder of Bioregional

- James Taylor-Foster, editor-at-large for ArchDaily

- Hikaru Nissanke, founding director of OMMX

- Chair: David Orr, chief executive of National Housing Federation
