NH PBS’ documentary film Communities and Consequences II: Rebalancing New Hampshire’s Human Ecology is a sequel project to 2008’s award-winning Communities and Consequences: The Unbalancing of New Hampshire’s Human Ecology. This timely new film explores the economic and social realities of workforce shortages in our state – the nation’s second oldest state in terms of median age – and the role that housing affordability plays in keeping and attracting young talent.
Bonnie and Kathy from Eastern Lakes Region Housing Coalition (ELRHC) will share the story of how members of the Wolfeboro community came together to address housing affordability. ELRHC is a non-profit established in 2005 whose objective is to support the creation of a diversity of housing in the region to ensure that all friends, neighbors and family members can find affordable housing in their own communities.
