Robin Allison is the initiator and project coordinator of Earthsong Eco-Neighbourhood, the award-winning 32-home cohousing neighbourhood in Ranui, Auckland, New Zealand. Earthsong demonstrates leading-edge sustainable design with intensive community involvement, and was a finalist in 2009 in both the World Habitat Awards and UN Habitat Awards.
Next seminar series “Cohousing – From WOW! to HOW…” coming up in March/April 2017.
These seminars are also run in other regions as a Friday night talk and full Saturday workshop. Coming up: Tauranga on March 31 and April 1st, Hamilton on 7th & 8th July, Wellington on 28th & 29th July, Rotorua in September 2017.
“I’m totally committed to supporting the development of healthy connected communities and thriving sustainable neighbourhoods. Having spent 15 years learning the wide range of skills needed to bring Earthsong to fruition, I’m now offering my experience to support and promote these values in other housing initiatives and the broader context of village and town centres. I see strong local neighbourhoods, and the cohousing model in particular, as contributing a layer of connection and cooperation that is one of the keys to creating more sustainable cities.”
