Could collective housing be a solution for the housing crisis and the social isolation? (English)
Abstract [en]

his study is exploring whether collective housing could mean a solution to the housing crisis and if this form of housing at the same time could achieve social sustainability. It is of interest to achieve social sustainability in order to decrease social isolation and mental illness that spreads mainly among young people in Sweden (Eckerdal, C. et al., 2018). This is examined by looking at the social benefits that can be found by charing home with others that is not your direct family and see if this form of housing could be seen as an attractive housing alternative of people in different socio-economic groups. The results are based on interviews and scientific articles that together concludes that this way of housing may not be an over all solution for the housing crisis in Sweden but may contribute to some positive change in both the housing market and in the inhabitants mental health, which the results of this text indicates. The way people live has a big impact on their possibilities to create a sustainable social life and it is important for humans to feel safe (Alfredsson, B., 1979). Humans way of socialise is directly related to their social connection which is why an unsafe living situation could have negative consequences on humans social life and mental health (Satici, S. A et al., 2015). This way of living could become more and more popular with inhabitant in need of a home (Törnqvist, M.,2019) and an increased wish from people to become a part of a community as a result of the urbanisation and an individualism (Vestbro D., 2010).
