Fellowship for Intentional Community’s Partner Organization
On April 30, 2016 Cohousing communities are welcoming the public for tours and visits on the first annual NATIONAL COHOUSING OPEN HOUSE DAY!
Individuals, families, and groups are encouraged to attend this free event at communities all around the United States, and some beyond, as we celebrate the joy of living in intentional, collaborative neighborhoods.
Here is a list of participating Cohousing communities. Mark your calendar and plan your day now! No registration necessary. Just check out the participating communities and plan to visit.
Featuring: Some Communities will be showing a FREE Screening of Within Reach – Journey to Find Sustainable Community.
The NATIONAL COHOUSING OPEN HOUSE DAY intends to inspire individuals and families to join existing or forming cohousing communities, and spark the creation of new cohousing communities.
Open houses are great opportunities for communities to recruit members and educate the public, but coordinated open houses across the country become a national event that has the potential to exponentially increase the amount of attention these events receive. We want cohousing to become mainstream. We want people to be able to say cohousing without thinking about whether others will know what they’re talking about. We want the ideas, the models, the principles, the culture of cohousing to infiltrate and fundamentally alter the conventional wisdom of residential development.
The National Open House Day is an opportunity to inject cohousing into the public consciousness in a major way.
Experience for yourself why interest in cohousing has surged in recent years!
- Baby boomers seeking to downsize and connect more with neighbors, allowing for aging-in-place
- Socially-conscious choosing a community-oriented and environmentally-friendly lifestyle
- Millennials seeking a better way to raise their families and increase collaboration with others.
