|Object||The Afrikaanderwijk Co-operative brings together existing workplaces, entrepreneurs, producers, social organizations and the market. They encourage sustainable local production, knowledge exchange, cultural development and entrepreneurship based on shared responsibility and participation. The goal is to make Rotterdam Zuid, and especially the Africa district, a stronger and more capitalier area with concerned residents and entrepreneurs. The Cooperative increases self-reliance and strengthens infrastructures. In this way they create opportunities to increase the self-organizing capacity of an area through the provision of labor, services and products while at the same time reducing waste of talent.|
