Interested in becoming a cohousing professional? The 500 Communities Program is giving entrepreneurs the tools they need to bring cohousing into their career portfolio.
Maybe you're interested in sustainable community design. Maybe you're thinking about in bringing cohousing into your real estate repertoire. Maybe you're pondering what it would be like to be a project manager for developing communities, or how you can help facilitate more communities in your area.
The 500 Communities Program is a 12 month, online, course designed by Katie McCamant of CoHousing Solutions (and the cofounder of the US cohousing movement) to train collaborators to meet the expanding need for professional support in creating new communities. The program is applicable to many different job fields, and was designed with all means of collaborative development in mind. Its intention is not to teach one model of cohousing, but to build on the lessons learned as we explore models of collaborative development not taught in university or trade school. Beyond the curriculum, the program is providing a much needed community of cohousing and development professionals working in this space.
