Kraftwerk1 - Zurich

NetHood has recently engaged in a new research and action activity around the young cooperative housing and living projects in Zurich, such as Kraftwerk1 and NeNa1, in collaboration with the INURA Zurich Institute (project MAZI).

This effort has led to the creation of a new initiative in Greece, Co-Hab Athens, which organizes currently a series of monthly meetings in collaboration with the Neighbourhood Association of Exarchia, and participates in various related international events.

Previous related activities include the coordination of the EU project COMPARE, an interdisciplinary exploration of self-organization in practice. See the summary report of the final symposium of the project.
