Co-Housing Cultures


An exhibition about self-organised, community-oriented and sustainable housing


The European Economic and Social Committee, in cooperation with Id22: Institute for Creative Sustainability: experimentcity and the Berlin Senate's Department for Urban Development and the Environment, is holding an exhibition on 'Co-Housing Cultures'. In the context of the European Year of 'Active Ageing and Intergenerational Solidarity' this exhibition presents a very diverse range of initiatives and projects which aim to find new forms of housing. Co-Housing Cultures are emerging internationally, reflecting the variety of regional traditions, languages and possibilities. In a number of European cities alternative models for living together have been created, expressing both people's interest in self-organisation, collaboration and cooperation and the need for ecological, affordable and socially designed homes. The passionate commitment of increasing numbers of people in the various communities and cities is bringing life and energy to this unique movement.


The EESC is pleased to invite you to come and see a selection of outstanding European examples of how innovative ways of intergenerational community life can be put into practice. Maybe it will inspire you to become active yourself!
