Back in the cold October breeze, 52 brave citizens of Copenhagen made a FlashMob for signing the Hopenhagen petition. Today when I was searching around the web I came by photos with Hopenhagen and the greenwashing of Coca Cola. These banners are hanging around the town and bringing attention to the big Hopenhagen live event that are ongoing at the same square where the Sunbathers was doing their stunt. When I went on youtube to see the sunbathing video I discovered a new flashmob from Syracuse in New York. It is a true copy and it´s great! bringing awareness to the main issue! – COP15 the meeting in Copenhagen and the importance of having a global agreement.

Here are the two videos!

As most people know by now, Copenhagen will host the climate meeting Cop15 in December.
It has been around for a while and the time is closing in! – will Obama join? will the different politicians take any decisions? Will the African nations be heard? Will Nepenthes save the threes and WWF save the pandas or polar bears?
The questions are many and only time will tell. Or what?

The other day I watched a board discussion hosting: Knud Pedersen, Vice president at Dong Energi, among others. He presented Dong´s strategy to become a more CO2 neutral company. During the next 30 years the will shift the figures from: 15% CO2 neutral energy and 85% Goal driven energy – to 85% CO2 neutral energy and 15% energy containing CO2 emissions. This is a pretty hardcore strategy to become a Co2 friendly company. If the companies are ready to deal with the climate issue, and the politicians are too, then why are we talking about the fact that there might not happen anything during Cop15? if it all is just one big scam and get-together, then why even bother having it? What is the energy concumtion of hosting that meeting gonna cost compared to how much it will safe?

There are many things that I am curious to see in December!
Kadaver have been in contact with a broad perspective of people dealing with small events, happenings, campaigns, conferences, exhibitions etc. A lot of things are going to go down at the same time, and most of it is extremely interesting.
Then there is also the whole aspect of all the travelers coming to Copenhagen to stay during Cop15. The hotels has been booked for quite a while now and great initiatives like: New Life Copenhagen has been established in order to host people from a grassroots level too. the Couchsurfing network is heated and a broad specter of activists are preparing for December.

The Demonstration on December 12th, is estimated to have approximately 60.000 participant! All yelling for climate change! If you know of any great initiatives thats gonna happen, then feel free to drop a comment or an email. Then we will post it here on the blog for others to see and participate.

I am exited like if it was christmas…

Going green is a popular trend in these days. Specially in Copenhagen now the COP15 is running close. Kadaver has for the past been known for having a good and healthy traditionally lunch. Danish “rugbrød” with various of meet layers and of course a lot of topping!
To day we tried to join the wave of the “green”. A fresh salad for lunch was our introduction to the more “green minded living”. I even snapped a photo of it before eating it. It was a delightful dish and I must say that I enjoyed it. – even though I am not proud to say so.. it have been a brand for specially Johannes and I to eat Rugbrød and Leverpostej for lunch during our time at the Kaospilot. Changing a brand is always a hard one! We managed today, and now the interesting aspect is to see if we can keep it.
I always get so fascinated when shopping food, there are so many possibilities to choose between. And so much I don´t choose! And that makes me wonder what you are having for lunch these days?

Enjoy your day! and enjoy your lunch!

What is 350?
350 is the number that leading scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide—measured in “Parts Per Million” in our atmosphere. 350 PPM—it’s the number humanity needs to get back to as soon as possible to avoid runaway climate change.” see more –> here

Hear Bill Mckibben Author of Deep Economy and co-founders of 350.org explain the need for taking this campaign serious. click –> here

The preparation for the 350 events have been running for some time now. More than 4000 events will take place on the action day October 24. The 350.org states that the “mission is to inspire the world to rise to the challenge of the climate crisis—to create a new sense of urgency and of possibility for our planet
And how are they doing it? – through the web site www.350.org you are able to sign up for participating. You can register your own participation and that has lead to 170 different host countries. Further more they have made it possible for you to print out the logo – 350 – in the right font and stencil, which leads to projects of awareness like these:

first one is the back of my own bike, where the numbers 350 constantly are visible for the public. I have had some curious questions towards the number and other forms for thumbs up during my rides around Copenhagen city.

This second photo is the window of our beloved office at Solitudevej 1 Copenhagen, where 2 plates of 350 is hanging in the window.

The last one is found on the internet, a “green” way of creating graffiti. I am sure Claus Bondam thinks this is “the alright form for street art” as he express in Politiken October 13.

The small things happening around the city brings awareness towards 350. I am looking forward to see the end result on October 24th.

Here is a A video giving some great insight on the campaign.
