The Life-Sized City Blog: Oceanic Bicycle Demonstration in Copenhagen

Another bicycle demonstration is scheduled for the streets of Copenhagen, this one initiated by A Sea Change - Imagine a world without fish.

Let's See the Sea & CO2! Climate change affects the ocean, too!
We're biking to get the word out about ocean acidification, the evil twin of climate change. Let's get it on the table at COP-15!

On Sunday, December 13, 2009 the Bike Ride for the Ocean will begin at 13:00 on the Copenhagen Harbour. At Quay number 139, on Havnegade [street]. It will end at the City Hall Square [Rådhuspladsen] - or back at Quay 139: your choice! Quay 139 is very close to the National Bank of Denmark and Christiansborg. Sponsored by the Danish Society for a Living Sea, Future Kulture, and Niijii Films/A Sea Change.

Welcome to Copenhagen, Kim.
