“Since 2018 Conscious Coliving has been at the forefront of this up-and-coming global movement, researching key trends, publishing award-winning content and co-creating with those who are shaping the industry.”

These guests include best-selling authors, public speakers and many others who have their hands on the levers of change in the shared-living industry.

“In each episode, we will deep-dive into key topics, including business models and technology, as well as enhancing community wellbeing and sustainability to foster deep re-connection with ourselves, others and nature. Together we will explore how shared living is already tackling some of the biggest challenges that we face today, and how to scale it in the way the world needs.” Naima concludes.
