“Funding the Cooperative City in Central Europe” explores, promotes and assists experiments in organising and establishing new community spaces and services in cities in Central Europe. After a series of workshops organised in Rotterdam, Berlin and Paris, the project aims at moving to Central Europe: through a series of events in the Visegrad countries, we will complete the creation of a Europe-wide network of experimental initiatives that introduces new ways to finance and organise community spaces and services.

There is an urgent need for circular cities. Given this fact, the municipality of Amsterdam has earmarked the Buiksloterham district as a Living Lab for the circular city. On 5 March, the parties involved* signed the ‘Circular Buiksloterham’ manifesto”.
