Living in a housing cooperative can be an excellent choice for those who want to participate in their community actively. The cooperative's unique ownership model and democratic governance structure foster a strong sense of community where everyone has an equal voice. Cooperatives embody values such as self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity, and solidarity, creating a truly inspiring living environment. Watch this short video and be inspired!
