  • Our new flexible membership is online!

      • think.dk

    This has been a long time coming, so I'm super glad to share with you all that our new flexible membership fee has just been published!

    It means that from now on, you can choose to what degree you want to support us financially each month. The 'minimum' membership fee will stay at 100,- DKK (except during the lockdown - see below!), but if you can & want to give us more you can just do it :) And this is how:

    1. Log in at our website
    2. Go to your profile (your name in the upper right corner)
    3. Click on 'membership' tab
    4. Scroll to the menu item 'change membership price'
    5. Enter the amount you want to support us with, and click the 'update membership price' button

    Here's how it looks like:

    As we announced last week, there won't be any minimum price  as long as the lockdown lasts - so if you are financially challenged, you can set the price to 0,- without having to cancel your membership.

    If you choose to do so, please act before Sunday midnight. This is the deadline for when it will be possible to set your subscription to zero for the next subscription renewal! We will set your membership fee back to the previous price (of your membership) after the lockdown is over.

    On Monday, we will restart the automatic charging process again, so if you don't act you will just keep paying 100,- DKK. You can set the amount up anytime, so the deadline only applies for the 'free subscription'.

    No matter if you choose to change the amount of your monthly support or not, the renewal cycle will stay the same. So if you started your membership on the 23.04.2018, 'your' member month will still go from the 23rd of a month until the 22nd of the next.

    We have quite an amount of running costs to cover despite the space being left unused, so any contribution means a lot to us - and increases the chances for us still being around on the other side of this. Thank you again for your support <3

    We hope you're all well, and that we can hug each other again very soon!

    Insistently hopeful,

    Anja

    Hey Changers!

    First and foremost we really hope you're all well, and don't suffer too much from the restrictions and economic consequences of the limitations the government has put upon us to navigate this crisis.

    Ripping the band-aid: We've had another extraordinary board meeting last Thursday and decided that we'll expand the closing time of the Center until the end of April.

    How's this good news, you might ask?

    Well, we just pushed an update to our page that allows our hosts to mark events as either cancelled, postponed or moved online. Check out our calendar to see what you can join from your home - and please read this blog post on why we encourage you to use our own server to host online meetings (no time limits and for free!) instead of Zoom, and how it works! Co-creator Josh set up a server we can use for all think-events, and here's the instructions :)

    We'd love to add more events to our calendar that help people to navigate these times in a meaningful way, so if you feel inspired to host an online event yourself, please go ahead - and don't hesitate to get in touch with us if you need any questions answered first.

    Support your local culture!

    Many of you are experiencing financial consequences from this situation, and so do we. We are extremely grateful for those of you who keep supporting us despite the physical location being closed for the time being - we depend on all the support we can get during these times, and each of your contributions makes a difference. 

    We hope that everyone keeps in mind the following: whatever you're supporting during these times will define the world after this is all over. Order everything at Amazon and that's the world we'll get. Support your local business and you help them be part of The After.

    Since we decided to expand the closing time of the physical Center for another month, we decided to pause all membership payments from the 01.04. (no joke! ;) - so we won't charge you any further membership fees until the lockdown is over.

    You will, though, get the chance to support us anyways with a monthly contribution, with whatever amount you can afford (and for now, you can always drop us a donation to MobilePay No 65601)!

    Martin is currently working on an update that allows a flexible membership fee where each of you can choose how much you want to give, and we'll send out another mail to our members explaining the update as soon as it's online.

    Kulturpris FTW!

    Last week, we received the amazing news that we've been nominated for the Oesterbro Kulturpris for the second time in a row - we're so excited!

    Thanks so much to those of you who nominated us! It would make a huge difference for us to win this price, and I'm already dreaming of the great party we'd throw to celebrate it - I don't want to be too arrogant about it, but hey it can't hurt to give the universe a little push ;)

    In any case, we're super happy about the nomination and proud to be listed as one of the main contributors strengthening the cultural scene in Oesterbro. We really hope that the award ceremony on the 22.4. can actually take place - we'll keep you updated in case it will be postponed.

    So - what are we doing about COVID-19?

    As much as we'd love to slow down and use this time to turn inwards, we couldn't help to work on a campaign page related to the pandemic situation. We are as much concerned as we are excited about the possibilities this situation is offering, and we felt a strong urge to create something meaningful to help people navigate this lockdown.

    We shared the manifest for the healing potential of Corona with you yesterday, and we'd love you to put your name underneath it so we can motivate more people to join the commitments. We want this manifest to be inspiring to as many people as possible, so any sharing is strongly encouraged and appreciated! We hope you will find some meaning and helpful resources in it <3

    The same goes for the sustainable financial aid plan - we believe that freezing debts and cancelling rents is a much more meaningful aid package than the one the government is offering now, and we hope you agree and share the idea, discuss it on SoMe, spread the word. We have to get active to turn this ship into the right direction - it won't happen by itself. It's in our power :)

    Thanks for reading!

    If you feel like some more: if found the perspective Charles Eisenstein recently shared on this pandemic truly inspiring, and it saved me from keeping to spend hours everyday trying to follow the never ending news stream. Finally a holistic view of the situation :)

    Take care of yourself and those around you. And if you are inspired to contribute to our brand new blog area, feel free to send us whatever content you want to share with the community and the world!

    Much love,

    Anja

  • 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

  • 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.

    Read the benefits and conditions in this post, or go straight to the co-working membership application form!

  • 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
