In May 2010, the first ever International Conference on Collaborative Housing took place in Stockholm, Sweden, attracting 150 participants from no less than 20 countries. Cohousing Now presents a comprehensive report from the conferense.

Living together

The book is an excellent source of material for researchers, housing companies, politicians, activists and non-government organisations interested in how to solve challenges linked to the ageing of societies and other transformations in household structures, how to relate to the problems of urban anonymity and isolation, or how to bring to life the potential of neighbourly cooperation and the search for less unsustainable lifestyles.

The Conference was a joint arrangement by the Swedish association Kollektivhus Nu and the Division of Urban and Regional Studies of The Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm.
