Presentation: Could CLTs be the Answer to the Housing Crisis in the Global South?

Thursday, November 14 | 7:00 PM

CHT is excited to bring Dr. Theresa Williamson of Catalytic Communities to Burlington on Thursday, November 14 for a presentation and discussion on how the community land trust model is addressing housing insecurity in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro. The event is part of CHT’s ongoing celebration of its 35th anniversary.


Her presentation, “Could Community Land Trusts be the Answer to the Housing Crisis in the Global South?”, draws and builds upon models developed here in Burlington and will be followed by a panel of guests including CHT’s Brenda Torpy; John Emmeus Davis who has traveled the world consulting on CLTs; and City Councilor Brian Pine, who was Burlington’s Housing Director for years.


The presentation and panel discussion will be at Contois Auditorium at Burlington’s City Hall from 7pm to 8:30 on Thursday, November 14. The event is free to the public and all are welcome to attend.
