Yes, Allison! I am! And Hybrid models need to be considered absolutely. I am committed and doing a lot of learning and experimenting on hybrid spaces... would be interested to plug in with whomever can help that be a collective peer learning and sharing project for cohousing communities across the continent / globe. As I mentioned before I have a professional interest in this. I work for an online (social) movement school that was on Zoom for years prior to the pandemic; and our focus is centering care and access. I lead the tech support trainings and development. Would love to know who do I talk to, who can I work with to further access in cohousing post pandemic?
