CoHousing and the Future of Real Estate By Jessica  Stoner

In this episode of the The Future of Real Estate, we are exploring Co-Housing, an intriguing,  growing lifestyle choice.  Many  people are unfamiliar with the concept and are quite intrigued with the idea once they hear about it.

Co-Housing is the concept of purpose built neighbourhoods and communities, with the intention of stronger community ties and a closer connection with neighbours. It is essentially a return to the traditional Village.

We will discuss why people are gravitating towards this unique (for now) lifestyle, how it works, why it is in so much demand, and where you can find co-housing communities.  

We have two co-housing experts that will help us understand more about it, in this thought provoking hour, as they share general information, as well as personal experiences living and developing co-housing communities.

What Not A Collaborative Global Initiative?

What Not A Collaborative Global Initiative?


Our VocieAmerica program features global leaders and organizations.

We live in an increasingly complex and interconnected world. Humanity faces global environmental, economic and human-based challenges of all kinds. Lasting solutions to these challenges require effective communication and learning across perspectives, cultures and sectors.

At CGI, we believe humans are by nature collaborative.

When people work together, allowing space to capture collective wisdom, we achieve great things. Forward thinking people and communities recognize the need for widespread collaboration. They will need a unique toolkit to collaboratively navigate the future of increasing complexity and diversity.
CGI provides the tools that organizations require to excel and make creative change in a diverse and globalized world. We customize solutions for collaboration that transcend organizational departments, cultures and differing levels of education and socio-economic status. The system that results will maximize effective, fair and lasting relationships between sectors and stakeholders.
CGI’s collaborative approach is itself born out of collaboration. Our associated consultants are connected through a vibrant global community of practice. We are leading experts on mediation, facilitation, training, process design, multi-party dispute resolution, and collaborative problem solving. Our network brings a blend of community-based approaches with national and international experience. We understand conflict issues from multiple perspectives and support parties to access a range of good practices when seeking solutions. We can work with any scale and complexity of conflict.
CGI’s skills, interests and overall strategy, leads us to focus on multi-stakeholder public-policy questions. We have extensive experience working with resource extraction industries, indigenous communities, and complex multi-party environmental issues. We will support you and your organization as you face similar challenges. Our approach is particularly effective for large projects where trade-offs must be made to balance environmental, economic, social and cultural interests.
CGI works with organizations and communities to develop the capacity to turn challenges into opportunities; everyone involved becomes more effective and agile. Our clients take away the collaborative skills, tools and systems needed to transcend inefficiencies and succeed in a global economy. At CGI we believe the way of the future is paved with the ability to make collaboration a lived experience. We use visual, auditory and kinesthetic tools in our collaborative mediation, facilitation, and negotiation practice. CGI can also provide one on one coaching and training to help you, our clients, excel. We empower you to face complex problems, create mutually beneficial solutions and to enact change together through the use of simple interfaces and plain language.

Together, Duncan Autrey, Kathy Porter, Charalee Graydon, Sarah Daitch and David B. Savage are building the Collaborative Global Initiative (CGI).

We welcome your thoughts and challenges. How might you and CGI collaborate?
