Oksigen Lab Coaching: Symbiosis

Symbiosis derives from the Ancient Greek language: ‘sym’ means together, and ‘biosis’ means living. This non-profit is developing an innovative housing concept based on autonomy, involvement and group dynamics for people in the second half of life.

Symbiosis focuses on the life stage after 65, and is concerned about the way this population group is perceived and treated in society. The close group of friends that created this project is convinced that there is a need and a strong desire for an alternative housing and living concept where peace of mind, commitment, team spirit and wellbeing are central values.

Symbiosis aims to provide a housing option which offers the prospect of more than just growing old. The Symbiosis housing concept involves living in a community with a strong support network and easy access to care services and relief centers, where different local social projects play a key role in activating the neighborhood and its inhabitants.

Oksigen Lab's coaching focused in the first stage on clarifying the vision and mission of the project. The second coaching trajectory aimed to create a strong business plan, which could lead to the set-up of a first pilot project.

Interested to share ideas or to collaborate on how to grow old in a dignified, active way? Symbiosis is open to different opinions and ideas to help this project and movement grow. Contact
