Dear Copenhagen is a micro-political web-platform that allows users to leave text messages to the City of Copenhagen.
Messages are created on virtual post-it notes in different colors according to topic. By default, they all begin with "Kære København" (Dear Copenhagen) and users have 250 characters to express themselves.
Judging from the current top-30 list of most liked messages, Copenhageners are primarily concerned with traffic issues (yellow notes) closely followed by cultural issues (turquoise notes). Messages regarding social issues (red notes) barely make it into the list. Perhaps there are no urgent social problems in Copenhagen, or perhaps those who have them are not on the web?
Dear Copenhagen is a private initiative created by three designers. It would be interesting to see it applied to different cities internationally.
