Co-operative Housing in Estonia
Presentation about Estonian Union of Housing Cooperatives EKÜL by Andres Jaadla, Founder and Chairman of the board – and Member of the board of Housing Europe.
The Estonian Union of Co-operative Housing Associations was founded in 1996 by regional unions as a national umbrella organisation for the co-operative movement in Estonia. In 1999, the co-operative housing movement changed its structure to a one-level national organisation. Since then, housing co-operatives have been direct members of the national organisation.
With its roughly 1,400 members, the Estonian Union of Co-operative Housing Associations is one of the largest non-profit organizations in Estonia. The Union represents about 1 million people who live in Estonia in apartment buildings and blocks of flats.
