Rising rents and purchase prices, skyrocketing energy costs, plus a lack of housing in the metropolitan areas – can we still afford to live at all and what ideas and alternatives for affordable and sustainable living are there? Anna Planken and Daniel Aßmann travel through North Rhine-Westphalia, look for solutions and show how people live here. Live in a high-rise or in the first Tiny House settlement? Rather live on the water or move into a bunker?
