Join the Open Species Embassy!

The ambassadors will inspire through joint conversation about individual and shared activities and goals in 2020. We will find and write down three individual goals for all Species Ambassadors, who can be as small and as wild as the individual wishes.

Also, the Embassy Secretary will share what has happened since the opening, and give a presentation on plans and ideas for joint activities.

Everyone is welcome!


Vi finder og nedskriver tre individuelle mål for alle Artsambassadører, der kan være så små og så vilde som den enkelte ønsker.

Orientering fra Ambassadesekretæren om hvad der er sket siden åbningen, og oplæg om planer og ideer til fælles aktiviteter.

Alle er velkomne!

About the Species Embassy

The Embassy of Species Copenhagen is the voice of nature in the capital of Denmark and aims to have wild species represented in our democracy and city.

The starting point in our diverse community of Species Embassies is the personal communication of Species Ambassadors, who popularly, creatively and thoughtfully convey, and advocate for their species. In here, every bird sings with its own beak. The bat expert, like the school student, each has their own way of speaking their species' case and showing its value and condition.
Our first goal is to become as many species ambassadors for wild species as there are people in the citizen assembly, i.e. 55.

We give the species-geocentric view of nature a counterpoint, with a view of nature that gives nature value in itself.

A manifold democracy.
We want nature's wild species to have much more space, understanding and acceptance and that this is shown in the real city and community development.

We work towards getting nature mayors, mayors of nature and a minister of nature who take the wild species' perspective on present and future priorities and development, and we want to introduce legal rights for species, habitats, ecosystems and habitats.

It must be possible to sue X, in the general legal system, for a species or habitat, for example on behalf of the Amager Fælled, if a law, an urban plan, or a private exploitation adversely affects one or more species in the capital and the country ecosystem.

We are affiliated with Arternes Aarhus and Arternes Aalborg.
