Sustainable Housing Event

Would you like to renovate an inner city terrace and turn it into a housing co-op?

Or share a stately home in the West End of Newcastle?

Or live on a rural permaculture site in low impact housing in Northumberland or County Durham?

These are the types of housing initiatives, based on shared values of community, sustainability and affordability that are happening across the UK, and could be done here in the North East. There is lots of interest in this, here in the North East at the moment, so bring your energy and ideas to this event and help convert this interest into real projects!

Come to this event to:

  • Find other like minded people to work with on a housing project
  • Think more about what you want from housing
  • Meet others who already live like this and find out what works and what doesn’t.
  • Hear about examples of projects across the UK and Europe

The event is on Saturday the 15th of SeptemberBrunswick Church, Newcastle, from 10.30 till 4pm (Doors open at 10am for tea, coffee and registration). There will be a free vegetarian lunch. Children are welcome to take part. We can put on a creche if needed, but if you need that facility please let me know by the 1st of September. Brunswick Church is 1 min walk from The Monument in Newcastle, behind Waterstones book shop, and 10 mins walk from Newcastle central station. It is fully accessible for wheel chairs.

If you have a project idea to promote please let us know, so we can make time for you to tell people about it, during the event.

This event is supported by the Co-op and Newcastle University, and is organised by Living For The Future, a North East Permaculture Network/North East Transition Town Activists Network initiative to promote sustainable dwelling through low impact development, co-housing, land co-ops and housing co-ops.
