Fred -- my understanding is like yours -- no organization or association re: cohousing in Denmark. They've long given up on conferences and workshops. Last one held in late '90's I believe. Chuck Durrett would have more info on this. Perhaps w/ the advent of Sr. cohousing there IS an organization of some kind as it's such a new animal at the watering hole. Certainly haven't heard of one however.

Sorry to [not have searched] through your archives,
but I need this information rather urgently.  I live in Costa
Rica and am starting a senior cohousing project. I've just been presented with an opportunity to leave immediately for three weeks in Denmark and I want to take full advantage of my time there by learning from experts and visiting as many cohousing projects as possible. I'm wondering if you might have the contact information of an association, network leader, center, or anyone whom I might contact who would give me an entry into the cohousing world in

Very much appreciate your assisting me with this special request.

My very best regards,
Darrylle Stafford

I am not aware of "an association, network leader, center" in Denmark
to refer Darrylle to...  The visit to Denmark with 7 other folks
( "DK99" ) was in 1999 and my contacts have not been kept up unfortunately.

Here's a message I wrote in 2002 on this topic:

On our trip we contacted individual communities.  Here is a link to a
2001 partial list:

Are there are other folks on cohousing-L who care of offer other advice?

BTW since this was my first contact with Darrylle I googled him to find
that he is a lawyer (with real estate connections) and grandfather
who had some very complementary about him on the web.
