YIMBY was founded in Stockholm in October 2007. Its aim was and still is to reestablish and take back town planning, which has been replaced by transit planning and housing development. This separation in planning has been shown by several studies to be detrimental to the environment.
YIMBY is a modern environmental movement and organisation that sees sustainable development as something essential to the survival of this planet.
YIMBY is an apolitical and non-religious organization.
