Anitra Nelson is Associate Professor in the Centre for Urban Research at RMIT University, Australia. During the evening Anitra will talk about her new book 'Small is Necessary: Shared Living on a Shared Planet'. Does small mean less? Not necessarily. In an era of housing crises, environmental unsustainability and social fragmentation, the need for more sociable, affordable and sustainable housing is vital. The answer? Shared living - from joint households to land-sharing, cohousing and ecovillages.

Paul Chatterton, Professor Urban Futures at the University of Leeds will explore his experiences of Lilac cohousing cooperative, his forthcoming Pluto book 'Unlocking Sustainable Cities' and plans to set up the Centre for Sustainable Cities in Leeds' Kirkstall Valley.

Anitra and Paul will then host a conversation with the audience on the challenges of creating more shared sustainable cities
