Global Platform Denmark launch / by Nick Ierodiaconou

From London to Denmark, 00 has teamed up with former team member Tim Ahrensbach (now at Action Aid) to design and build Global Platform Denmark - Denmark’s new centre for global citizenship and education.

Global Platforms is a worldwide network of training hubs for empowerment and activism, providing innovative trainings and capacity building for organisations and young individuals who wish to take positive action in their societies. 00 developed the designs, as well as supporting ActionAid in the co-build refurbishment of their Global Platform in Copenhagen. Within a tight budget of £30k and 6-week timeframe, the building was refurbished by young people (16-30 years) with previously limited construction skills.

If anyone is in Copenhagen this September, we invite them to come to the launch of Global Platform Denmark on September 6th at 15:00, where you will get the opportunity to see the space and get an insight into the activities and organistions that are housed here. The day will offer a plethora of workshops, drinks, good music, networking and light refreshments.

Global Platform Denmark is a community of 13 organisations, academics and social entrepreneurs, who collaborate on creating activities, which engender global sustainability and democratic participation, and fight poverty and injustice.
