Below is information on the celebration of 30 years of Fellowship for Intentional Community (FIC) Cohousing which is a form of intentional community and goes back about that far depending on when you start counting. 30 years would be 1987. That's when the current FIC was formed. The Cohousing Association of the United States started in 1995 - 22 years as I recall. There has long been cooperation between the two organizations. Cohousing-L started in 1993 - 24 years. But FIC has roots that go back much further - read the timeline in the article. Note that one of the blog posts (see below) is by Coho/US ED Karen Haskin. Fred Olson 30 years of building a movement - What have we accomplished? https://www.ic.org/fic-30th-birthday by Sky Blue, FIC -- Executive Director A lot's changed in the last 30 years. The internet alone as transformed just about everything. We constantly hear stories from people about how they found their community through the online Directory. Having a website is just a given today, but http://www.ic.org was started back in 1994 (not without considerable concern and skepticism), when two-letter domain names were still available. The intentional communities movement has become, well, a movement, something to be studied, and something people can find not just a home in but a career path. For 30 years the FIC has provided networking and support to co- ops, land trusts, Cohousing, ecovillages, communes, and collective living of all kinds. We've helped people find communities, helped communities find people, and helped people who want to start communities find each other. We've also been a face and point of interaction for media, researchers, and allied movements. Find out more and help us celebrate.
