Fuse Talk: Co- Living


Join us alongside experts Ed Fernon (Chief Executive of Co-Living Company, UKO) and Laurence Troy (Lecturer of Urbanism, The University of Sydney) as we explore how Co-Living developments are dissolving the stigma of boarding houses of Sydney’s past, by presenting co-living as an economic, environmental and socially sustainable solution to urban living.

Ed Fernon is the Chief Executive of UKO. UKO is a Co-Living company which provides innovative furnished apartments with lease flexibility, on site hosts and community activities, all without the frustrations of landlords. Ed is critical of recent developments which in response to population growth and urbanisation focus on creating places where people sleep, as opposed to places where people live.

Professor Laurence Troy completed his PHD on the politics of urban sustainability and how cities can respond to the environmental challenges of the 21st century. With interest in the intersection of housing markets, urban governance, urban renewal and social-economic outcomes in Australian cities, Laurence is sure to provide insight into the context surrounding the expansion of co-living.
