Urbanismo Capital - Funding the Cooperative City

21.04.2016 - 23.04.2016 09:30h - 19:00h
The Funding the Cooperative City – Madrid workshop brings together protagonists to help shaping a new European culture of urban development based on community investment, cooperative ownership and civic economic models.

The self-organization of new spaces of work, culture and social welfare has been made possible by various socio-economic circumstances: unemployment, solidarity networks, changing real estate prices and ownership patters created opportunities for stepping out of the regular dynamisms of real estate development. In some cases, cooperative ownership structures exclude the possibility of real estate speculation, in others, new welfare services are integrated in local economic tissues, relying on unused resources and capacities. The new cooperative development processes also witnessed the emergence of new types of investors, operating along principles of ethics or sustainability.


Participants had been selected by a european open call among more than 80 citizen projects. For the Madrid worshop the selected projects are: Wikitoki, Bilbao (ES), De Besturing, The Hague (NL), La fabrika detodalavida, Los Santos de Mainona (ES), Gängeviertel, Hamburg (DE), Instituto Do It Yourself IDYS, Madrid (ES). Participants will visit at the madrid workshop to know more about their economical, funding and ownership models.
