Community Land Trust in Berlin

A Community Land Trust (CLT) is a local democratic, non-profit and common good property ownership form that removes speculation from land and property in order to develop and maintain sustainably affordable housing, as well as other social, cultural, environmental or commercial uses.
This model has been successfully established over the last 30 years in the USA, England, and other countries, but does not yet exist in Germany.
Thus, id22, in partnership with other community development organisations, activists and experts in Berlin, is developing a CLT initiative for this region with its pilot program in the district of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg. Though still in its initial, experimental phase, CLT-Berlin is on its way to becoming the first CLT in Germany!
