CoHousing Here. Dublin. 2019.

CoHousing Here as a vital discussion about community-led housing, architecture, community and affordability,
brought together speakers from Germany, Belgium, Spain, Holland, Italy, the UK and Ireland to approach themes of collaboration, participation and social agency in cohousing, including Michael LaFond and many others.

Bringing together innovators, policymakers and activists CoHousing Here challenges us to think about participative design, innovative home and community building, democratic urban planning, and agency for residents in the creation of their homes.

CoHousing Here aims to inform the Irish public in regard to alternative, socially and environmentally sustainable housing models, which encourage and facilitate diversity, adaptability and community development. CoHousing Here is designed to inspire Irish people as to the possibilities for participating in and contributing to high quality diverse urban neighbourhoods, as well as the potential for self-organised development.
