Have you thought about getting more involved with cohousing? We don’t just mean forming a group and living in community, we mean within your line of work. Maybe you’re interested in sustainable community design. Maybe you’re thinking about in bringing cohousing into your real estate repertoire. Maybe you’re pondering what it would be like to be a project manager for developing communities, or how you can help facilitate more communities in your area. Perhaps you are passionate about community and want to help grow the market.
The 500 Communities Program is a 12 month course designed to train collaborators to meet the expanding need for professional support in creating new communities. The program is applicable to many different job fields, and was designed with all means of collaborative development in mind. Its intention is not to teach one model of cohousing, but to build on the lessons learned as we explore models of collaborative development not taught in university or trade school.
Beyond the curriculum, the program provides a much needed community for cohousing and development professionals.
