Is it Cohousing ? – Group Participation Game – Voice your Opinion

Facilitated by Ty Albright

Facilitated Discussion Description

Want to participate is a “game show” type experience? What makes a community cohousing vs. something else? During this session we will consider different types of developments with different scenarios and ask “is it cohousing?” We hope this will be a fun event; all participants will be asked to quickly vote their opinion (there is no “right” answer) and explain what set of characteristics are necessary for something to be cohousing. We hope to use the feedback from this event to collect data and report back to others what cohousing people think. Can you arrange a bunch of mobile homes around a community fire pit and call it cohousing? Come and find out.
