There are many of us that are looking forward to getting back to ‘a normal life’. COVID has changed the way a lot of us work. Our embedded norms have been broken but this has allowed us to think about what we want our own routines to be in the future. Do you really want to get in a car and start commuting again?
Working from home is not going away. Many companies are now re-acessing the larges costs associated with commercial offices; which have been mostly empty over the last 12 months.

What makes it Low Carbon?
When it comes to co–working, benefits such as collaboration, convenience and cost are widely discussed. But coworking spaces also offer another upside: they’re more environmentally friendly than any other type of office space.
As a concept, co-working offices offer some level of sustainability that exceeds regular working environments. With different businesses and freelancers sharing space and amenities, coworking means less waste.
Using a shared office instead of separate offices means less heating, less electricity, less water used for amenities like dishwashers etc. Perishable supplies like milk and other refreshments get used up faster, so there is less waste there too.
Our co-working spaces would be furnished with up-cycled furniture and subscribers would be encouraged to share and demonstrate green initiatives. Travel to the space should be easy without a car within the village.
