The ability of Jakarta's middle class to afford housing is often overlooked. The city government's housing assistance has mostly been targeted to help low-income groups. In a functioning system, the middle class is served by market mechanism. In the case of Jakarta, the crisis of middle-class housing is so acute, millions of middle-class people have not been able to fulfil their basic need for proper housing in the city.

The event aims to highlight the economic and social impact of the flight of the middle class (millennials, young families, etc.) from the city on the urban environment by exploring best practices and lessons from other cities: land use, spatial planning, financial schemes, rental vs ownership.
