CS Shared House-Flat Project

Imagine:

CS members sharing one flator a building with some flatsor a farmor a beach houseor a hut in the mountains
wouldnt that be great: to travel and gather?
or to have the possibility to visit around the world a CS Shared House/Flatmeet friends and enjoy a nice stay?
Consider how cool would be to team up with your house mates on creative projects

>caring for a green garden,
>organizing an arts expo
>a tour in the city for new CS members

or maybe creating something completely new, like a project:

While i was living in Belgium along last few months, did some research on a 40 years old project on community living at the UCL University in Louvain la Neuve, which has actually a wonderful impact on softskills, collaboration, self-management and leadership skills building as well, resilience.

Well, i decided to publish a booklet and some interviews, for online free reading, wishing it to travel around the world, and benefit all type of human-based organizations, including online networks as CS (all chapters are available on prezi)

The kap experience, community living, is a wonderful tool for empowering resilience collaboration, and advance management and self management skills. It could be also a very practical self-education experience, for those ones that like the idea to explore on the human factor side of the equation.

Well, consider that possibility, to create at each CS-Location a CS-House / CS-Flat, where to share with other CS-Friends.

Is that feasible? i am sure that many CS members involved in real state business would say yes.

Now...would you try out the experience for some weeks, months or years? to share a flat with that guy or girl you share the In Forums and CS Activities with?

It could work out very well as an experience for singles, or for families (multi-flat house), a wonderful collaborative co-working space integrated to housing for entrepreneurs, an an ideal solution for season business travelers that visit the locations several times a year.

How do you like the idea, would you join us?
