Life on the Edge: Village Revival

You’ve likely seen the headlines declaring an epidemic of loneliness around the world. What’s less often talked about, though, is how modern housing is contributing to the problem.

One company aiming to turn things around is Denmark-based Almenr, where citizens act as co-developers of shared housing communities. All of the houses are built with sustainable materials, but more importantly, they’re built to foster meaningful connections.

Watch to learn why the future of housing might mark a return to old ways of life.
