Social housing opposition - how do we address the 'not in my backyard' attitude?

Affordable housing! Not in my back yard (NIMBY). How do we stop that? Educate? When Moorabool and Kilgour were built the local public outcry was embarrassing to most.

NIMBY is the responsibility for all of us. Everyone will have a different view around Social Housing, the important component here is that there is an increasing demand and need for social housing in our community and that housing is a fundamental human right.

Every person has the right to an adequate standard of living, which includes the right to adequate housing (ICESCR,article 11).
