Congratulations to COD's founder, Clare who just received news that she has been awarded the degree of PhD from Southern Cross University. Her PhD research project involved examining the implications of micro-housing for solutions to the affordable housing crisis in Australia.
A major component of Clare's research project was to convert a shipping container into a liveable dwelling and to document the process. This process is now being published in a weekly blog on our website. Check it out, this week is part four.
The PhD project also titled "Container of Dreams" was the inspiration for starting our Not-for-Profit organisation. "While undertaking my PhD project, my research exposed the overwhelming urgency to address the social problem of affordable housing".
The major outcome provided a template for a pathway to home ownership. "By starting this organisation my intention is to be able to provide practical solutions in order to address some of the inequities of wealth which are created through home ownership for currently marginalised sections of society."
Congratulations Dr. Clare, we look forward to great things from you in the role of CEO of Container of Dreams!
