The story so far…
- A little more than a year ago, we came together to build a “postcapitalist urban commune”. 🏯
- After months of community building and an intense sprint, we applied to the Archimedesplantsoen tender by the City of Amsterdam.
- We called it de Nieuwe Meent, the New Commons: “a housing cooperative organised entirely around the principles of commoning”. 💞
- By March, our proposal was selected as one of the three candidates for the final round. 🎖
- Then for the next three months, we met every Sunday to share food, co-design the building and formalise the association, while our architects worked tirelessly to make our dreams match the reality. 👩🏻💻
