"After having lived in cohousing for more than fifteen years as well as having visited many completed cohousing communities, I am aware of the impact this housing form has had not only on me but also on the people who have chosen this lifestyle. It is evident to me that this housing model contributes to a better world. I have experienced the richness of living in a connected community where people know and care about each other, I have learned how to work with differences without creating separation, and I have learned more about sharing and working co-creatively together � skills we not only benefit from as individuals, but skills we humans need if we are to be good stewards of this beautiful planet."
