Several vital questions will be discussed as What housing policies are the Nordic countries likely to adopt to respond to the changed environment?

The conference will offer an ideal venue for politicians, administrators, scholars and other professionals in the field of housing and planning in the Nordic countries to compare notes and learn from each other's experience.

The conference will be under the auspices of the Nordic Council of Ministers, of which Iceland currently holds the chairmanship.

The conference is open to all. Proceedings will be held in the Nordic languages and English. Interpreting services will be provided between the Scandinavian languages, on the one hand, and Icelandic and Finnish, on the other.
