*The Blue Zones* movement and book by Mark Buettner emphasizes the importance of community and connectedness to long and happy lives. The book documents a study originally supported by National Geographic to identify the characteristics of communities around the world where people live longest and happiest. Many of the strategies and practices identified either describe cohousing communities or are ones cohousing communities could commit to to provide benefits of cohousing. Unfortuantely I don't have time at present to point to specifics, but I encourage those interested to explore. Iowa City and the state of Iowa are working to becoming Blue Zone places.
