Better Place is a new addition to the Kadaver project portfolio. As a launch of this new collaboration we have been engaged in creating awareness by guiding the electric cars through the streets of Copenhagen. You could therefore see three electric cars (Renault Fluence Z.E.) around Copenhagen this past weekend, among other places at Islands Brygge, Amager Strandpark and Bellevue. Next weekend (July 17) you will be able to meet the cars at Rådhuspladsen from 10 am to 1 pm. See you there.

One year ago a group of people gathered around Stengade in Copenhagen to celebrate the birthday of now famous bus-driver, Mukhtar. So on this day, his birthday, we can congratulate him again and celebrate the fact that the youtube-film is about to reach the 3.000.000-click mark. Tomorrow it will also be decided whether the movie will go from Creative Circle-shortlisted to Creative Circle-winner.

Fingers crossed and Happy Birthday Mukhtar!

A new video has hit the viral airwaves! This video is the second Flash Mob in the “Bedre Bustur”-campaign that brought you Mukhtars Fødelsedag back in May.

Mukhtars Fødselsdag was the documentation of an elaborate birthday celebration that was made to create attention on the bus drivers of Copenhagen. This new video deals with a different theme. Every week thousands of Copenhageners uses the busses at night. Either to go back and forth to work or as an element of going out. The night  bus is normally a place where people are left by themselves and something surprising very rarely happens.

As the passengers have contributed with a lot of great input on how to make the bus rides better through two campaigns it was decided to give them something back. And the night bus passengers were selected!

Watch the movie, enjoy it and send to a friend who might be a regular night bus passenger.

Last week we were responsible for the final element of the five week bedre bustur campaign for Arriva. It was marked by celebrating the birthday of a bus-driver. He had no idea that a celebration would take place! The result was a great day with a lot of surprises, especially for the bus-driver, Mukhtar!

Check out the result and let us know what you think of it!

Throughout the last four weeks we have worked tightly together with the company bybird, Haus and Arriva on a campaign dubbed Bedre Bustur. The last four weeks have featured several initiatives, among others; five weekly magazines, newly designed headrests, social media concepts, a brand new website and to day the latest addition to the campaign was launched.

Late Sunday night 250 seat-covers was installed in the busses across Copenhagen. The new covers indicated that this was a loveseat… (Kærlighedssæde) Throughout the day Danish media have intensely covered the seats and a debate has been started around the use of these and the general interaction in the danish busses…

The focus on the campaign has been to improve the experiences in the busses and drag focus towards how a busride can improve seen from the perspective of the people that uses the busses on a daily basis.

All the initiatives has generated a lot of great response from the users and today the media gave their response. Below can find some of the articles that have been in the new throughout the day.

The likemind meetings have been happening for about one year in Copenhagen now. It have been an interesting way of meeting good people in copenhagen, and a way for Kadaver to see how the different social medias are working as promotion tools. The Copenhagen based Likemind has a twitter profile and a facebook page. Both with the purpose to drag people to join the meetings, and also with the purpose for participants to start sharing thoughts and projects and keep the new connection that might have happened. Lately the OsMig network was established on the Social Network platform Ning. It´s initiated by a good friend named Matias Ignatius, and I like the concept. Maybe that online network could use Likemind as a physical meeting facility ? The doors are open.

I am looking forward meeting you at the upcoming event.

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!

I am a somewhat proud citizen of Amager, an island just next to central Copenhagen. I have lived their for about a year now and in that year I have travelled from Amager to Nørrebro a lot of times. Although it’s a twenty minute ride back and forth I have come to love it.

One phenomenon that I have come to love and I believe it’s one of the greatest things in the city is the two bridges, Knippelsbro and Langebro. As bridges they are not really that unique but they are both helping to slow down the pace of the city now and again. Both bridges pass over the some quite travelled waters, which means that they have to open up – as they are not tall enough for the ships to pass under. I have not experience another city where a phenomenon like this one happens and that frequently.

When one of the bridges is up no one can pass. To me this is a rare chance for everyone in the proximity of the bridge to stop up and do absolutely nothing. I think there are many that are very annoyed by the occurrences, but the atmosphere and feel of the events are quite nice and I sometime find myself hoping the bridge will be up – although that would mean that I would met up late for work.

How come that we at Kadaver choose to blog? What do we get out of it? and what do you get out of it?

Kadaver have now been blogging on this site for 3 weeks. During these 3 weeks we have made 10 posts, this is #11 and we have generated about 400 hits. In the statistics it shows that the different hits are coming from various links and not search results. from this we can conclude that our blog is still too young to be found on the search engines such as google. But still the various social networks provide traffic through our site. Last week we created the Climate Flash Mob in Copenhagen for Hopenhagen.org, Our video is on the internet and have by now more than 2300 hits in only 3 days. for this we can thank our network and the web 2.0 users that spreads the word about interesting things happening on a global scale. We got mentioned by the Green Energy Reporters , Eva from Belfast UkTobie from Denmark the municipality of Copenhagen , in the nation newspaper Politiken web section Ibyen By Jacob Klintrup and Søren Bo Steendahl. Then the Twitter community have been tweeting and linking to us, here is a screenshot of my TweetDeck application.

Picture 13

The Facebook users have made comments and “reposts”. Here is a screenshot of my status update when we launched the video.

Picture 14

All in all this is the reason for why we are blogging, it gives us the possibility to interact with the end receiver of our projects. It provides you with information of what we as a company are working with and thinking, and it gives you the possibility to comment, interact and connect with us. If you have any thought or advice you think we should consider feel free to drop an email or comment here on the blog.

Good vibes!

Today is the big “blog action day”. Our beloved flash mob video is out. It is on the internet now. For the world to see. For you to see. For you to enjoy.

The video is made for the campaign Hopenhagen described in the previous post and it is beautiful.
50 people sunbathing at Rådhuspladsen in Copenhagen the main square in Copenhagen even in Denmark.

It was a very very nice experience and everything worked out perfectly.

Thanks to our beloved volunteers and the brilliant camera crew we believe that this is not the only flash mob we will execute in Kadaver. In fact we believe that many more will come and many more will be as good as this one.

This is our daily ecstasy and drive, this is what we want to do and this is what we have to do.

Let the predefined be redefined with a twist of Kadaver and a bunch of beautiful people!

On October 9, more than 50 Copenhageners concerned about the climate sunbathed on Town Square in the name of Hopenhagen. The message was crystal clear: We hope for a new signed climate change policy in december in order to ensure the future of our planet.

When the whistle blew, the green and white towels were spread out and the clothes were dropped! The sudden happening came as some surprise to the many bystanders who stared in amazement as the 50-something people between 11 and 71 years of age apparently enjoyed lying on the square, naked in 9 degrees celsius.
The purpose of the happening was to emphasize the problems our planet is facing and to, hopefully, both send a message to the world leaders that we need a signed deal but also to the citizens around the world that they too need to take stand and that action is necessary. The world’s climate issues need to be approached with creative thinking and alternative means. According to the city and the people of Copenhagen that also applies to the way we communicate the message.

Due to the fact that Copenhagen is at the center of attention in relation to three large events in 2009, the city has launched a campaign under the name, Hopenhagen. The first of the three events was the World Outgames that took place during the end of the summer. A couple of weeks ago Copenhagen was then host to the IOC meeting where Rio de Janeiro was elected host city for the 2016 summer olympic games. Finally and most relevantly Copenhagen will host the Climate Conference, COP 15 – Copenhagen Climate in the end of November. As these events has and will bring a lot of international guest to Copenhagen the municipality has decided to launch the campaign, Hopenhagen to both prepare the city for the guest and inform the citizens of the events and what they are all about.

As the two first events has already taken place the main focus – and the focus for the rest of the year will be on the Climate Conference and to create focus on the climate changes that we are facing. As the name of the campaign, Hopenhagen, implies there is a focus to turn the city into a city of Hope. A city where all the frames are in place to make the world leaders join in an agreement that will address the climate changes.

We, Kadaver, has recently work along side the Hopenhagen campaign and executed a flash mob to create attention on both climate changes and the campaign as such.

So stay tuned for the documentation of the event.

About one year ago two of the Kadaver partners, Søren and Johannes, were living in New York City for a couple of months. They were there as a part of the Kaospilot education program and work on a concrete assignment as is custom to the school. During their stay they came across a concept that caught their attention. The Concept is called Likemind and is a simple yet great way of networking. Through recent years we, Kadaver, have attended several networking events and we have found that there is more focus on the business card than the actual person behind it – that we felt was a shame. For us, at least, people are a whole lot more interesting than paper!

It seemed that the founders of Likemind shared our opinion. At the Likemind meetings it is the people, their thoughts and projects that is in focus and the business cards stays in the back pocket. That makes it possible to both engage in conversations and even just listen to what people have to say and get inspired that way.

To keep focus on the people in an even larger extend Likemind is not an after work event – but rather something that happens at the break of dawn. That way you will not meet people with a cocktail in hand but rather a steaming cup of morning coffee. And having a cup of coffee and meeting people early Friday morning is the perfect way of ending the week and starting a Friday.

If this concept has sparked some kind of interest the next Likemind meeting is October 16th at Din Nye Ven in Central Copenhagen – and of course set up and arranged by us, Kadaver… So see you bright and early at 8.00 AM

In our efforts to create meaning and alternative ways of exposure of the good cause we, along with many others, have stumbled upon the concept of Flash Mobs. To those of you who don’t know of the concept here is a quick introduction. A Flash Mob is an event were a large crowd assembles in the public space. They then perform a brief and sudden action that is out of the ordinary. They then leave the premises as if nothing has happened. That is the short version of what the concept is. What we believe should be added to this definition is documentation. Although a Flash Mob event can reach a large audience at crowded locations it has an even bigger potential in viral life online in the form of a video. It is therefore essential that the event is covered by a crew of cameramen and possibly also by audio recordings. That will create a far longer life of the Flash Mob and that is very interesting.

What we find incredibly interesting is combining a Flash Mob with a purpose that is more than the creative disturbance. And as our company focuses on the good cause – that is what we aim to promote and create attention around by utilizing the potential that lies within Flash Mobs.

And in a few weeks we will have the first example of a Flash Mob with a purpose created by us… When ready the documentation will naturally be present at this page.

The summer 2009, 4 kaospilots sets off to create a company, Kadaver, in the middle of the finance crises. All odds against us, and everywhere we go we meet question marks -??- is that possible in this financial situation? For 6 month ago the four founders; Jacob, Johannes, Anders and Søren took the choice not to believe in the financial crises. Simply go against the general assumptions by creating a business which includes the heart in all decisions. Based on inspiration from, among others, David Junge and the book “med hjertet på bundlinien” (with the heart on the bottom line) Kadaver wants to create meaning in society through their work.

Now in the establishing phase, we work on the implementation of the different tools we have learned at the Kaospilot education in Århus. As for now we follow the idea of the SCRUM meetings every morning in order to get an overview of the different tasks laying ahead off us.

Here is a photo from one site of the table during an update, of course it includes coffee and smiles.
