The Housing SIG was approved in April 2022. Check out the charter to learn more about it.

The purpose of the SIG is to focus on understanding the housing system, with three long-term goals in mind:
– The promotion of system dynamics as a tool to analyze housing systems and policy.
– The development of a repository of case studies, models and other resources for practice and teaching.
– To work as a group to spread the use of system dynamics through the housing community both in practice and in academia – via for example workshops, targeting housing-related conferences and journals, and developing case studies with policy impact.
