Denmark’s elevated benches raise awareness of rising tides
Danish broadcasting company TV 2 Denmark has installed elevated benches in Copenhagen to send out a strong message about the dangers of the climate crisis and rising sea levels.
Elevated benches have been installed in Copenhagen to raise awareness of climate change
15 benches have been placed in prominent places in the city in collaboration with the municipality of Copenhagen.
All the benches are fitted with a copper plaque reading: ‘Flooding will become part of our everyday life unless we start doing something about our climate. According to the latest UN Climate Report sea levels are expected to rise up to 1 meter by 2100 if global warming continues.’
The benches will act as a reminder to people as to what the future could look like in the year 2100.
The campaign is further supported by a TV spot, outdoor, print ads and an influencer campaign consisting of well-known Danish actors, artists, musicians, designers and the famous architect Bjarke Ingels.
