Don’t miss out on these amazing sessions and Keynote with Sky Blue. Register today for Cohousing Over Time <https://www.cohousing.org/cohoevents/2021-time/> on August 29, 2021! Keynote: Sky Blue Embracing Change: The challenges and possibilities of established communities Becoming a stable, established community is something to celebrate. It can also bring a whole slate of problems that may not pose an existential danger, but can drain the life out of a community. This doesn’t have to just be the way it is. If we come together and embrace the challenge a whole new world of community is possible. Session 1 Adopting Sociocracy/Dynamic Governance in an Established Community Jerry Koch-Gonzalez How can an established community transition from consensus decision-making to dynamic governance/sociocracy? What are the potential benefits? What are the potential challenges? Changing Feelings About Workshare Sharon Villines In my 25 years of studying and living in cohousing, I have drastically changed my view of workshare. Initially I was wedded to the idea of measuring and reporting time. I tracked my work on spreadsheets. I designed a database, defined jobs, estimated hours, etc. In the end I was the least interested in filling out my forms. But workshare was finally going very well at Takoma Village. What was working? Kids and Co-housing: How to Prevent the “Us versus Them” Kellie Teter and Adam Allemen What can Co-housers do to avoid the kids and adults being at odds, with an “us vs. them” sentiment? Learn how we have become more skilled at incorporating our children and young people into decision making, into community building, and generally managing our adult anxieties about the life and well-being of what we call “our children”, in order to improve the lives of all our members. “I love them, but…” Constructively Addressing Values Differences & Conflict in Community Georgia Handforth This is a structured discussion designed to explore the experiences and concerns of longtime cohousers, those seeking community, and everyone in between around how to navigate conflicts and values differences in community. We will draw on lived experiences to practice communication and coaching skills that can be brought back to home communities.
