How do we give housing agency to the city and its residents? 

Housing in Aotearoa is in crisis. Whether it’s housing quality, cost or the fact that a growing number of people are living in isolation, the current approach to housing is not addressing these key issues.

There are significant challenges presented by the current housing market and the standard approach to developing housing.

There’s a growing appetite for new solutions that shift away from speculation and promote equitable, sustainable, collective models of housing.

Come join us and a range of international and local speakers for a day of talks, workshops and conversations to help bring CoHousing to life in Aotearoa.


homes account for almost 30% of New Zealand's electricity consumption and are major contributors to greenhouse gas emissions. ”

Wellington City Council

"We are seeing a paradigm shift occurring where the collective direct procurement power of well organised boutique housing communities is demonstrating that they are able to operate independently from our developer dominated housing delivery sector. What is even more remarkable is that this is happening from the bottom up despite a lack of infrastructure to support New Zealand Collective Urban housing."
