What is the scale of community-led housing? How many people are involved in or housed in non-speculative, collective housing and neighborhood developments? What are the existing models of community-led housing? How do inhabitants organize, plan, finance and implement their community-led housing projects? What are their difficulties? Who supports community-led housing?
Documenting and sharing the stories of community-led housing is essential for acknowledging the scale and potential of people-driven habitat solutions. The collaborative online platform co-habitat.io crowdsources information and stories around community-led housing. The process by which the documentation is generated is as important as the data itself: CoHabitat partners develop collaborative, youth-led documentation strategies for storytelling and data collection.
The ambition of co-habitat.io is to aggregate data and stories from across the world to show the diversity of existing solutions and initiatives, provide quantitative and qualitative data on community-led housing and to connect the ecosystem of organizations, people and allies that contribute to its expansion.
