HOUSEHOLDS OF THE FUTURE: WILL SHARING OUR HOME BE THE NEW NORM?

Tuesday 15 October: 6:00pm - 7:45pm

Queens' College, The Old Kitchens, Silver Street, CB3 9ET

In the UK, we’re seeing the formation of new types of households - different generations of the same family living under the same roof, older people sharing their home with students in exchange for practical help around the house, and a rise in shared rented housing as a result of a failure to get on the housing ladder.

Cambridge Centre for Housing and Planning Research have been looking at how the way we live is changing. Our research projects have explored questions such as what is it like to live in a multigenerational home, and why is this type of household becoming more common? What are the benefits of cohousing? Is co-living a positive way to live in older age? And will digital innovation in home and work technologies make us 'digital nomads'?

Join Dr Gemma Burgess, Acting Director of CCHPR, architect and urban designer Manisha Patel, and Observer journalist James Tapper for a lively debate on multigenerational living, cohousing and life as a digital nomad. Followed by drinks and canapes.
