What great alignment - this spring Communities Magazine theme of communities and climate change with our May 2017 National Cohousing Conference <http://www.cohousing.org/2017> theme of building sustainable, resilient communities. For those considering submitting articles, also consider presenting at the conference. Visit our call for presentations. <http://www.cohousing.org/2017/call_for_presenters> I look forward to collaborating with the FIC at the conference, including we hope the FIC bookstore which will feature this issue of Communities.
