Collaborative living is experiencing a revival in The Netherlands. In the midst of an unprecedented housing crisis, more and more people turn to collective self-organisation to provide housing that is community-oriented, environmentally sustainable and affordable. But why is it so difficult for these initiatives to get off the ground? And what can be learned from other European countries?
Dr Darinka Czischke, Associate Professor in Housing and Social Sustainability at TU Delft, wrote a new book on this theme with colleagues Marije Peute and Sara Brysch. ‘Together: Towards Collaborative Living’ presents a collection of essays, data and cases from The Netherlands and other European countries that build on a knowledge programme developed in 2021 by Project Together!. The book illustrates the dilemmas and opportunities to move towards a new paradigm on how to live in the twenty-first century, together.
The book launch is on October 24 at Pakhuis De Zwijger. Read more about the event >
