Hello, Mattieu: I viewed & voted because I do think cohousing is an important alternative way of living that benefits the people who live in cohousing and also those who don't. However, I don't the think the video conveys this message to those who don't already know about cohousing. I realize your project is a documentary and isn't intended for such a short segment so I suggest you consider a voice over that would clearly and simply explain cohousing.

Best of luck,

Dear cohousers,
  2009 has just started and there is already a chance, if cohousers behave as a 
network, to give cohousing word media coverage!
The World Economic Forum*, where the world leaders gathers yearly since 1979, is meeting in late January. They asked citizens to reply with a video to the question: "What one thing do you think that countries, companies or individuals must do to make the world a better place in 2008?". Of course there is no one single answer, but cohousing as most of you know does make life better for people around the world! So I replied with the short trailer of my documentary on cohousing. I think we have a chance to bring cohousing to be discussed at the WEF because most of people's answer are too broad and hard to apply in reality. The cohousins is something focused and already lived by many!
  Please vote  for it (deadline 20th January) so that the cohousing issue is 
discussed at the next World Economic Forum.

Researcher at the European University Institute Lecturer at Arcadia University * The World Economic Forum is a very criticised summit as it gathers the world business and political leaders who tend to appear "green" and "social" whereas what really matters to them is to be more competitive and make more profit. Yet I do believe that it is important to use this media channel to speak about the advantages of living in a cohousing.
