Cohousing Presentation at Simon Fraser University

  • Simon Fraser University 1415 Cominco Policy Room 515 W Hastings St Vancouver, BC V6B 5K3 Canada (map)

Chuck will be giving a public cohousing presentation at Simon Fraser University on Friday, November 2, from 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm.

In this presentation, learn why senior cohousing is such a big deal today and how to get projects started. Durrett will highlight current housing challenges, including the influx of an aging society, and why cohousing is a successful model to combatting this challenge. Case studies and examples of senior cohousing communities in the U.S. today will be looked at in detail. This presentation is ideal for those interested in living in senior cohousing, professionals interested in working with cohousing groups, and policy makers who are curious how to provide supportive, sustainable, and eco-friendly senior neighborhoods to their localities. Attendees will learn how to become the tipping point on a local level, becoming an active voice for seniors in local government and culture. (Spoiler alert: It’s actually not that difficult.)

This event is made possible by the Dept. of Gerontology and Dept. of Urban Studies at Simon Fraser University.

The event is FREE but registration is encouraged.
