LiM Living in Metropolises
LiM Living in Metropolises SCE, the first European housing cooperative founded on May 11th, 2018, aims to strengthen the idea and practice of the cooperative legal form, which is part of UNESCO’s intangible world heritage, and to implement it with forward-looking projects.
For almost 150 years, housing cooperatives have stood for self-help, self-determination and self-responsibility. Under the motto of Friedrich Wilhelm Raiffeisen: “What one person cannot do alone, many can do”, they became pioneers in the field of housing reform.
In addition to the national or regional cooperative type on the housing market, LiM is characterised by its European competence. It can initiate cross-national initiatives and at the same time realize construction projects with local partner organizations or manage them with general rental agreements.
