Co-housing: balancing environmental and social sustainability?

Slides available here: http://www.slideshare.net/asimong/2015-0611-simongrant

Lancaster Cohousing is a living project in Halton, by the river, with about 40 member households. The vision was to live more sustainably, and the “Passivhaus” homes have been successfully built. The vision was also to govern our shared areas of concern by consensus. What kind of consensus works at that scale? What might make it sustainable socially, or even resilient to societal as well as personal disruption? Simon Grant lives there, and explores some of these governance issues.

John Foster makes some links to issues of resilience.
