We are encouraging universities, partners and professionals working with indigenous peoples' issues to have an active contact with each other and share ideas, project information, research findings and news related to indigenous peoples’ housing conditions, urbanization and indigenous building methods. For this purpose we have created a LinkedIn group “ Urban Indigenous Issues ”. We would like to encourage your university staff and students to join the discussion group at the following link: http://www.linkedin.com/groups?home=&gid=4998788&trk=anet_ug_hm&goback=.gmp_4998788.
The “Urban Indigenous Issues” network is part of the Global Housing Strategy Network (GHS). If you have not done this already, you are invited to register in the Urban Gateway and join the Global Housing Strategy on the following link:
For more information about the Global Housing Strategy please read the framework document.
