Interactive and informative Workshops in English and German languages are suitable for experts, students as well as school groups. Our workshops are focused on an exchange of ideas and dialogue, reflecting on what sustainability, inclusion and diversity really mean.
We have a bottom-up and transdisciplinary approach to sustainability, diversity and inclusion that combines architecture, urban planning, geography, arts and social sciences. Our workshops look at creative and participatory solutions as well as at practical ideas of how we can improve our cities and surroundings. The main focus is self-organisation: we are not waiting around for sustainability, but rather acting now to achieve small steps on the way to inclusive and sustainable cities. Therefore, we look at real examples and work with people and projects that are making a difference.

Self-organized, community-led housing for all
Experimental dwelling forms—CoHousing Cultures—are entering the mainstream. But to what extent are they accessible and affordable for all, including people with more or less money, with or without refugee experience, with or without disabilities? Collaborative, social housing initiatives are already developing such diversifying, sustainable neighborhoods, and are not only supported by civil society, but also increasingly by apartment providers such as cooperatives. This book contains critical reviews of model projects representing a colorful, European movement, complemented with photos and drawings. Short texts argue how political and financial conditions can be improved to better realize collaborative housing. Finally, a range of voices offer unconventional and promising strategies.
