Eef Tanghe

Eef Tanghe is a manager for Cohousing Projects, a cooperative that supports people to build their own cohousing community in Flanders. While initiating her personal project near Ghent, she acquired expert knowledge by hurdling many obstacles and visiting other communities in Belgium and abroad. Today, more than 20 groups of neighbors rely on her financial, architectural and legal advice to get their own community up and running.

Cohousing projects are housing developments from 8 to 35 units that are fully equipped. Additionally, neighbors share and manage a garden and a house with common facilities. In this Ted Talk, Eef will explain why this is a more social, affordable, sustainable and simply more fun way of developing our cities.
