Zadrugator is a housing cooperative established for providing affordable and quality living conditions in Ljubljana. Members of the cooperative have partnered to build an alternative living beyond traps of ownership and renting for profit. Cooperative is a form of democratic and communal management of housing that builds on pooling of labour and resources. Following the principles of justice, participation, solidarity and ecology it promotes the way of living that we believe should in the future become a key model of housing provision.
Second, but equally important Zadrugator’s goal is organizing the demand for affordable and decent housing for all. For growing number of people the right to live in quality housing is violated because of prevailing profit logic and state’s removal from housing provision. Through spreading knowledge and campaigning we are going to fight for better conditions in housing. We believe that for achieving quality housing it is essential to organize from below and to unite into cooperatives as basic model for better living condition. United we are strong.
