What is HotHouse?

We need to think honestly and creatively about the future.  And that is going to involve exploring new ideas, being deliberately provocative and challenging assumptions.

To facilitate this – and to separate it clearly from the Federation’s usual work – we’ve created HotHouse, a distinct identity for all our futures thinking activity. 

Over the coming years, this HotHouse website will be the space for all our conversations about the long-term future for housing associations.  We’ll publish research and opinion pieces, run polls and pose controversial questions – but most importantly, it will be a space where you can join in the debate.

The first HotHouse topic is Towards a Vision - what will the world look like in 2033 and what role can housing associations play?

Let’s start the debate together.
