SHARING ECONOMY BREAKOUT: Building Intentional Co-Housing Communities to Address Multiple Social & Economic Challenges

November 23, 2017
11:40 am  -  11:55 am

If co-housing is such a great idea and will solve so many social problems (affordability, isolation, sense of community, aging in place), why haven’t we heard of it? Why hasn’t it been done in Kelowna yet? This presentation will focus on what co-housing is (and isn’t), what co-housing’s critical success factors are, and where co-housing has been done in B.C. and across North America.

Hint: It’s NOT co-op housing! It’s NOT senior’s housing! Yet co-housing has thrived for decades in communities around the world. Perhaps your community will craft the next success story for co-housing?
