Intentional Communities

An intentional community is a group of people who have chosen to live together or share resources on the basis of common values. You may have heard of a commune, ecovillage, cohousing, coliving or student coop. These are all types of intentional communities. Intentional communities model more cooperative, sustainable and just ways of life. Source: Foundation for Intentional Communities
