Innovating on Housing in Halifax!

Future City Builders tackled the resilience topic of housing in Halifax! Blown away by the energy and interest in the city to tackle this issue - our cohort worked to innovate new ideas to reimagine what housing can look like in the city. The 30Lab ran from January to March 2019,  resulting in seven unique concepts presented at our final event. The project, ROOF, was awarded first place seed funding and second place seed funding was awarded to HFX Resilient Network.
