  • Something important to share

      • think.dk

    There's a reason why this platform has its name. We think about the bigger picture in order to find real and sustainable solutions to the problems that (will) affect us all – and there has been LOTS to think about these past weeks. 

    Many of use might experience fear and insecurity due to the circumstances. But this is not the time to cave in. It is the time to raise our voices, because this situation actually comes with huge opportunities to make leaps in terms of moving the setup of our society towards the new paradigm.

    As always, we support a holistic approach to this crisis, which is why we created a range of content for you:

    Let's not be stuck in a dying box - let us force a new debate. Please share the manifest and financial aid plan. Everywhere. And reach out if you want to add any online events to our calendar. Thank you.

    Much love,

    Anja

  • All events at our Center cancelled until the 31.3.

      • think.dk

    After careful consideration and discussions with the board as well as our members, we decided to cancel all events at our Center until and including the 31.3.

    We therewith follow the recommendation of the government to avoid public gatherings in order to help controlling the infection rate of COVID-19.

    We know of one person who has been at think.dk this week that is now showing symptoms - so please, if you've been around since the 9.3.2020, show extra consideration in terms of meeting other people. Stay away from people as much as possible, and especially from anyone in the risk group: people above 55, sick people, people with a weak immune system.

    The person has not been tested (since only people with life-threatening symptoms are tested by now) so we don't know for sure if it's COVID-19, but it's always good to be careful.

    We will keep you updated on our April schedule as soon as there are new developments.

    What now?

    Personally, I believe this is a great chance for us to stop for a moment and reflect.

    Feeling how everyone and everything is slowing down might finally wake us up to realize how absurd it is to keep running all. the. time. It is so quiet outside - did you listen?

    This is a beautiful chance to come to our senses, so let's use it! Here's some inspiration:

    • Offer your help to those in need: many people can't (or shouldn't!) go shopping anymore, or are in urgent need of babysitting to be able to do their jobs.
    • Rest! Meditate, treat yourself well, read all those books you stacked up during the past months or even years. If you're out of books, reach out to your friends (since, yes, the libraries are closed as well).
    • Reflect about your future: What to you want? Where do you want to go in your life? Is it time to start walking in a different direction? Maybe make a vision board collage out of those old magazines!
    • Call your grandparents! Ask what they need, fear, regret, treasure.
    • Learn something: there's endless free online courses, youtube channels, blogs on every topic you can imagine. Educate yourself on things you've always been curious about.
    • Catch up with your friends near and far. Friendships weirdly ended up becoming a luxury recently - it shouldn't be. Fresh up your contacts. It's 2020! You can be close(r) to people without physical contact. Video calls, hangouts, skype, so many options..and they're free. Use them!
    • Go through all of your stuff. Sort out broken things and bring them to the recycling station. Pass on things you don't use/need anymore, for example through all the 'free your stuff' groups on facebook or resell them on dba. Fix up precious things that need a loving hand. Make your home your castle.
    • Smile! It helps :)

    This shutdown can be a wonderful experience for the majority of us if we choose to - because it's not our lives that are shut down, it's the machine that keeps us from living it.

    Reach out if you're inspired as well and want to seize the opportunity to kick off a project that might help those in need. Now is the time! We are in the process of creating a page collecting information and inspiration about this situation, and will share it with you as soon as possible.

    Take care of yourself and those around you.

    Much love,

    Anja and the think.dk team

  • Co-working at think.dk

      • think.dk

    From now on, our space is open for co-working - we decided to open the space for daytime work projects, because there is more space to be used by inspiring people and workspace is rare and expensive in this city. If you haven't heard of us before finding out about this and want to know what else we are doing, you can read more about us here (ad everywhere else on this page ;).

    Our co-working space is open to all and we aim to create a supportive environment where individuals are encouraged to share ideas, knowledge and help each other thrive.

  • Why being a member of think.dk helps to save the world

      • think.dk

    This is not about what's in it for you, but for everyone – we’re in this together

    It has come to our attention that some people don’t understand why they should become a member, and why we have a membership based concept to finance our Center. Here comes our explanation.

    think.dk is a place for creators. For people who have the bigger picture in mind, who want to share knowledge, try new concepts, and let ideas and creativity unfold. For people who believe that it is time that we start caring about others, our local communities and our planet. For people who are ready to carry a part of the weight, and to be part of the solution instead a part of the problem. All of these points perfectly describe the mindset of our members – our big challenge is to find enough of them to keep this place alive.

    We aim to be independent of foundations or state support that is only granted for limited periods, and of investors who connect their giving with demands on how we do things. We do not want to suffer from financial insecurity forever, but instead we want to build a stable way of carrying this place – by many small contributions from the people.

    There are thousands of initiatives out there who survive like this. But here at think.dk, we are continuously met with concerns from people who feel like it ‘wouldn’t be worth it’ for them to sign up for the membership. It seems like the benefits that come with paying each month – free access to many events, 50% discount on the others, the possibility to use the space for your own passion project and so on – are not worth 100,- DKK. We’ve been struggling for some time to understand this, especially because at the same time other people express that this is incredibly cheap for the value think.dk provides.

    Recently, however, this perspective has become more understandable: people still argue from a consumer’s perspective. Of course, why would you pay 100,- each month, if you might only make it here once every second month to an event that costs only 80,- DKK? That seems like a waste of money, right? Especially if you have a full-time job, a family and live at the other end of the city, it might be hard to see how investing 100,- DKK each month will pay out for you.

    It is not surprising that this is how most people are arguing. We are, after all, made to be and are treated as consumers in all areas of life, so it has become our default way of looking at things. So, let us explain to you why it is time to switch glasses:

    We believe that spaces like the one we created here in Østerbro, Copenhagen, are vital for the survival of humanity. We believe that we have to start looking at the world through a different lens, if we want to ensure a future for our children that is worth living. And we believe that each of us carries that spark within ourselves, that drives us to create something meaningful instead of being degraded to being just a consumer. The human potential is so much bigger than that, and we are not ready to give up hope in humanity yet.

    We also believe that think.dk has the potential to grow into a sustainable business, employing several people – perhaps 10s, 100s or even 1000s of people all over the world – in a network where all experience and infrastructure is shared. Where our kind of change thrives.

    We are convinced that there are enough people out there who want to step into their power of co-creation, who are ready to act from a creator’s mindset. People who want to support a space where we allow humans to experiment in order to unfold their potential, where we implement new ways of approaching problems and sustainable solutions from a holistic perspective. We hope they will find us before we run out of breath.

    So please consider becoming a member of think.dk so that we can continue with our collective quest to create a sustainable future.

    Insistently hopeful,

    Rosa, Anja & Martin
