The 2009 National Cohousing Conference was a great success! It ran from June 24 to June 28th 2009. Please join us for our next conference!

International Cohousing Summit

As the first of its kind, the International Cohousing Summit was intended to begin a dialogue amongst countries and establish a network for continued interaction.

Many countries have long established communities that can provide advice, anecdotal evidence, and hope to those in countries where cohousing is a burgeoning concept. This Summit addressed some of these common concerns and the pitfalls to avoid in developing new communities. We have begun creating ways to maintain contact with each other, as well as plan for future work together (either physical or virtual). This video was created at the Summit and shared at the 2009 National Cohousing Conference Keynote...

The International Summit was presented and produced by the Cohousing Association of the United States with support and guidance from the following:

University of Washington College of Architecture and Urban Planning
Canadian Cohousing Network
UK Cohousing Network
