Please submit cohousing organizations, businesses, and networks only to this category. Cohousing communities go in the regional classification under Society/Lifestyle Choice/Intentional Communities.Web sites about co-housing in general. Cohousing is the name of a type of collaborative housing which is aimed at increasing community relations while sharing certain physical space such as common buildings with lounges, meeting rooms, tool and workshops, childcare, and / or common space such as gardens or woods. It is a form of intentional living.
An Intentional Community is an inclusive term for cohousing, residential land trusts, communes, student co-ops, urban housing cooperatives, and related projects for those who choose (i.e. "intend") to participate in them. That is, these communities are organized around a core set of values or belief systems to which their members adhere. Some groups may be utopian and others separatist in spirit, while others are designed to be models for mainstream society to observe and perhaps emulate. Eco-villages, communes and kibbutzes, and Biblical Christian reserves are among the types of communities to be found in this category.
