The agenda for Stream Europe 2018 is in your hands. There are six session times a day, hosted in nine different meeting spaces. Each session runs for 1 hour (give or take) and all sessions are led by you, the Stream Europe participants. Here's how it works:

  1. Before Stream - Share your idea - Create a New Discussion by clicking on the blue ‘add idea’ button on the left of this page
  2. Before Stream - Invite others to join you - you can see the participants list at the Participants page.
  3. At Stream - Book a slot - when you arrive on site, write your discussion on the Big Boards

The Stream Europe team is on hand to help. Please get in touch if you'd like to talk an idea through before posting, or would like help finding some co-hosts.

Why Is House Building So Rubbish (and what can we do about it)?

Especiallly in the UK, we have made houses the same way for far too long. We take, what is effectively, mud out of the ground, heat it up in block shapes, assemble all on site, and make mistakes often. And then we wonder why house prices keep going up and we have a housing shortage... I would love to hear from others why we think (the UK especially, America is good at pre-fab) this is the case... and what are the main things we can do to solve it mainly calling on the following areas: 1. Financing (mortages, loans etc) 2. Building techniques 3. Innovation in materials 4. Regulation 5. Gov. Support 6. Anything else!
