From land speculation and exploding rents to climate change and social inequality, we find ourselves in an age of overlapping crises. As such, it is more important than ever that we rethink the ways we live and share, as well as our systems of land and property ownership. Social-Ecological Cooperative Housing presents pioneering cooperative housing projects in Basel, Berlin, Vienna, and Zurich. The initiatives and alternative ownership models showcased demonstrate the potential of cooperative practices for the necessary social-ecological transformation of building and living. This interactive e-book enables and encourages the reader to dive more deeply into individual topics and take action themselves.
