2nd Cooperative Housing Symposium Zurich: Growing The Movement

07-04-2022

Housing cooperatives are an important element in making our cities green, equitable and community-led. But there are more people in housing need than there are housing coops. Besides the need to grow the movement we also need to continue building on successes so that more housing coops can offer inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable housing.
