Kære København ("Dear Copenhagen") is a website allowing the citizens of Copenhagen to leave messages to their city in the form of digital post-it notes; it is a micro-political platform made for easy communication between people and politicians. People can write their thoughts, comments and ideas, and kvetch and complain - these messages can be rated by other users, allowing the communal voice of the city to promote the ideas that matter most.
Kære København was created in collaboration with Philip Battin and Henrik Ralf Nielsen.
The project has since expanded to include international cities, and the plan is to develop it into a global platform.
Why hasn't there come anything out of the good intentions there originally were with Kødbyen?
Now it's being sold instead of becoming a playground for the city's creative culture.
Copenhagen, shame on you!
Why is it that the only thing we hear about when it comes to schooling and care is cutbacks and cutbacks; where is the vision for our future, our children?
I get so depressed when you build soulless, dull buildings like Ørestad, Bryggen, Kalvebod Brygge. I really hope you stop before you ruin Staden, Refshalen, Sydhavn og Nordhavn.
Build with love. Build with environmentally friendly materials - less glass and steel.
