Could cohousing be the next big thing in London?

What exactly is the cohousing model and how does it differ from a cooperative housing model? Is it just for hippies and hipsters or can anyone get involved?

The government has just launched a new £240 million Community Housing Fund to help grow the community-led housing movement. With growing uncertainty about the London housing market coupled to ever-increasing need could co-housing be the next big thing for London? And if so, what would that look like, and what is required to make it happen?

Come and hear from Alex Whitcroft, founder of Cohousing London and architect specialising in sustainable and community-led projects and developments.

Alex lived in a community land trust in the States and now he wants to connect individuals interested in starting cohousing projects in London and the South West. He will share examples of successful community-led housing models around the world, including projects he is already working with in the UK and key tips for joining or setting up your own community-led housing initiative.

The event will be facilitated by Joost Beunderman (Hub Director & Project 00) and there will be plenty of time to ask questions and network
