Radical Routes

Radical Routes
is a networks of housing coops, worker coops, and social centres in the
UK. We want to see a world based upon equality and co-operation, where
people give according to their ability and receive according to their
needs. Where work is fulfilling and useful and where creativity is
encouraged, where decision making is open to everyone with no
hierarchies and where the environment is valued and respected in its
own right rather than exploited. We want to take control over all
aspects of our lives. However, as we are not all in a position of
control we are forced to compromise to exist.
The specific means Radical Routes is pursuing are:

  • Setting up housing co-operatives to house people and projects with the above aims.
  • Setting up worker co-operatives with the above aims.
  • Promoting and organising participatory education through
    skills and knowledge sharing, through Taking Control events,
    distributing informative material and through work shops.
  • Raising finance to allow control over resources (property,
    technology and land) through co-operation and the economic interlocking
    of the co-operatives.
  • Supporting like minded projects.


Creating a co-operative world through housing, education & work.
