Cohousing is a form of collaborative housing in which residents actively participate in the design and operation of their own neighbourhoods. While maintaining private lives, Cohousing allows residents to benefit from shared spaces and facilities. It facilitates people to build strong relationships with their neighbours and has great economic and sustainable benefits through the sharing of resources.

Robin Allison is the initiator and project coordinator of Earthsong Eco-Neighbourhood, the award-winning 32-home cohousing neighbourhood in Auckland. With her background in architecture, Robin guided the entire development and construction phase of this innovative project, which demonstrates leading-edge sustainable design with intensive community involvement.

Robin now writes, teaches and consults around New Zealand to inspire and support thriving connected communities. She has just returned from the US cohousing conference in May, bringing renewed inspiration and insights from the scores of cohousing neighbourhoods across the USA.
