Co-living has captured the excitement of cities, developers, hospitality companies, entrepreneurs, architects, urban planners, and investors. Meanwhile, affordable workforce housing is a critical need in our world.

Co-Liv! is the first edition of a global gathering to spark conversations around affordability, policy, new investment and entrepreneurship in this sector, featuring luminaries such as Ollie's Christopher Bledsoe, Emmanuel Guisset from Outsite, Purehouse Lab and The Collective -- hosted expertly by Impact Hub SF at its building in the Mission District.

Join us in San Francisco from December 7-9, 2017 and help shape the future of this movement around workshops, talks and informal social gatherings covering: Culture and Community, Affordability, Policy, Services, Tools and Space.
