European Intentional Communities Day

For the Netherlands the theme of 2018 is self-management.
A concept that intentinal communities are familiar with, but where there is also a lot of interest in housing corporations and neighborhood- and tenant-organizations.

In self-management a part of the tasks is done by the residents themselves. This varies from the joint cleaning of the building, the renovation and furnishing of common areas and maintenance of a shared garden.

But there are also further forms of self-management where the residents buy up the complex and arrange the rent and maintenance themselves.
In the Netherlands the latter is called the wooncoöperatie, which concept that is on the rise.
