In Building Community with Cohousing, film makers Dany Gagnon and Regan Payne interview cohousing residents from WindSong Cohousing Community (completed 1996), Cranberry Commons Cohousing (completed 2001) and Roberts Creek Cohousing (completed 2005). This video is entertaining, informative, heart-warming and inspiring. It provides a general overview of the concept and can be used to help educate the general public, developers, planners, and people interested in joining a completed or forming cohousing community. The video was produced by the Canadian Cohousing Network, funded by the membership of cohousing communities in Canada.

COHOUSING AS AN INCLUSIVE DEMOCRACY Documentary by Pablo Cousinou.

Building collaboratives communities and spaces for participation. What is cohousing? How can it contribute to an inclusive democracy?
Located in Torremocha del Jarama, 50 km from Madrid, Trabensol, “Trabajadores en solidaridad” (Workers in solidarity), a housing cooperative has concentrated a hundred of citizens and their good results are collecting followers.
Their daily life in the cooperative is based on principles as participation; town meeting; transparency; ethical bank; self-management; independency….
Principles that are directly connected with the challenge and the practice of an inclusive and real participative democracy.
