About Funding the Cooperative City

“Funding the Cooperative City” explores, promotes and assists experiments in community-led real estate development in European cities. Through workshops (Rotterdam, Berlin and Paris in 2014 and Budapest, Madrid, Rome and Amsterdam in 2016) as well as investigative reports, video portraits and a publication, the project brings together protagonists from various cities to help shaping a new European culture of urban development based on community-driven initiatives, civic economic models and cooperative ownership.

Funding the Cooperative City is realised by Eutropian in collaboration with Vivero de Initiativas Ciudadanas, KEK – Hungarian Architecture Centre, Wonderland Platform for European Architecture and UrbanITA with the support of the World Urban Campaign and Advocate Europe.
