Housing the Co-op –
A Micropolitical Manifesto

Housing the Co-op illustrates how co-operative practices can provide affordable shelter for a growing global population. The manifest and accompanying essays - including case studies from Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Americas - show that a mix of micro-political actions and models of co-ownership, co-production, and co-management can spark systemic change for a more sustainable and equitable future.
