Posted on: September 4, 2020, by :

As part of our Community Climate Solutions project, we had a fascinating conversation with the Sharing Shed and Co-Housing Australia to discuss the real sharing economy and its possibilities in creating sustainable and more resilient communities.

Elena Pereyra – Co-Housing Australia

Cohousing is essentially a citizen-led housing development that seeks to reduce the footprint, economically and ecologically, of the individual household by having a variety of communal spaces for community activity and resource sharing, with a focus on collective self-management and participatory governance. http://communities.org.au/

This event was brought produced by Kororoit Creek Neighbourhood House and Brimbank Climate Action as part of our Community Climate Solutions Project.

The project is supported by Brimbank City Council
