Have you heard about the amazing inventions they’re trying out on Mars!?
There’s an amazing innovation here on earth, and Trish Becker-Hafnor is going to tell us about it.
Join us as we watch, then discuss, Trish’s short, lively TEDx Talk, Cohousing and the Future of Community and Human Connection.
Trish shares what is groundbreaking about CoHousing, an newer form of intentional community. She also shares how her cohousing community has affected her family and neighbors. Trish is an educator, activist, parent and community co-founder.
Cohousing is just one point on a wide spectrum of communal living models, and it’s basically built around three principles: shared space, shared time, and shared values. — Trish Becker-Hafnor

Humanity is in crisis. The feedback loop between larger society, the communities we live in, and our personal experiences reinforce systems of privilege and oppression that create harm – for people and the planet.
From the safety of your home*, learn what makes a group an intentional community. Are intentional communities part of the problem or part of the solution? How can we do better? This conversation between Sky and Avi will delve into these multifaceted experiments known as intentional communities and their potential to help transform our world.
