Sharing Copenhagen enables people and agendas to meet through project coaching, seed money, and lots of co-creation, in order to create viable projects that support the municipality's social, cultural, and sustainable development goals and strategies.
The challenge is to seize the ideas of committed entrepreneurs for the development of a city with an edge and thus create projects that are relevant to the citizens and visitors of Copenhagen.
The basic idea is trust and respect for the ideas and drive of new entrepreneurs. Sharing Copenhagen's role is to be the project's ambassador to the municipality, and help ensure rapid progress through project development consultation and guidance on regulatory requirements.
Projects can also apply for partnership with, and co-financing from Sharing Copenhagen.
Case: Wild horses – Amager Fælled
Exmoor ponies from Langeland have been released on Amager Common. They are both part of the conservation of the area and a means for educating about nature as a whole. All the while eating invasive plant species and adding further biodiversity to the area.
Copenhagen Grazing Cooperative is the driving force behind the project, together with Sharing Copenhagen, from whom they received financing.
