CONFERENCE REPORTS
Report on the first day of the international conference Sustainable Living: Professional Approaches to Housework 

 
Housework is a dirty word in more ways than one when the work of the home should be valued as a vital building block of a healthy society and a key resource to inform such wider issues as how to reduce waste and carbon.

Report on the second day of the international conference Sustainable Living: Professional Approaches to Housework 

 
A sustainable society is made up of individuals with basic human needs that need to be met. For most people 'home' is a place that recalls happy memories and feelings of warmth, acceptance, comfort and care. It is also a place where these basic human needs are met in a way that respects their human dignity and enables them to develop to their full potential, be it socially or professionally. During day two of the Sustainable Living: Professional Approaches to Housework international conference speakers and panellists drew from their different realms of professional and academic expertise to explore the important role the homemaker plays in social sustainability.

Conference Report on From House to Home 
Report on From House to Home the Second International Conference in the Excellence in the Home series organized by Home Renaissance Foundation  
London, November 20th & 21st 2008. The Queen Elizabeth II Conference Center.
As Winston Churchill once said, ‘We shape our buildings and afterwards our buildings shape us’. Where we live, that is to say our house, plays a significant role in the development of our lives. It is where our future is moulded, where we learn to live with others, where our values are defined, where we seek refuge, protection and security.
 
 
 
Second Conference Report: From House to Home 
Second International Conference in the Excellence in the Home Series, organised by the Home Renaissance Foundation  
‘Home’ is a difficult concept to define. The richness of the home is reflected in the many facets attributed to it, and it is perhaps the unique and ambitious mission of the Home Renaissance Foundation to explore all these facets. At last November’s Home Renaissance Foundation international conference, From House to Home, architects and urbanists, as well as experts in the fields of economy, sociology, business management – and even a museum director – gathered to answer the question, ‘What makes a house a home?’
