Messages in the Streets of Copenhagen

Every plaza in Copenhagen, it seems, has been booked for exhibits relating to climate change. The town square in front of the City Hall is home to the Christmas tree lighted with energy produced by bicyclists, trailers with exhibits, and the large globe recording the 'acts of hope'. Other squares have photo exhibits, including "100 Places to Remember Before They Disappear" ( and climate science exhibits.

In addition to large-scale melting glaciers, there are other melting figures.  At the Bella Center, the mermaid of Copenhagen melted near the entrance gate.  Here, near the Arctic Center (WWF) exhibits, a polar bear melts.

And if you seek refuge from the rain, many of the museums have related displays, including the "Nature Strikes Back" and "ReThink Nature."
