'Mount Copenhagen is a project that aims to build a mountain on the outskirts of Copenhagen'
Mount Copenhagen is the idea and project that aims to build a 3,5 kilometers high mountain in Denmark. As the temperature drops aproximately one degree per hundred meters above sea level, the mountain will have a glacier on top with eternal snow and ice. Every Spring this snow and ice will melt and with time develop a river delta and create an ideal environment for wild salmon and trouts. The mountain will be a recreational area and a place where you can skii during winter time and cycle in the summer. The mountain will have a circumference of 55 km, it will take around 200 years to build and cost in the area of $120.000.000.000,- . So it is a project that only our future generations will benefit from.
At first glance this idea might sound insane, unrealistic and very long-termed. But people did not always think like this. Our ancestors build great architectual monuments. Monuments that millions of people travel around the world to see and experience and which also have a great income from turism. It took 160 years to build the cathedral in Firenze, which started the renaissance. Think of the pyramids in Egypt or imagine Copenhagen, if Christian IV had not lived. Think of the brand value a mountain like this could potentially be for Denmark. Today we live in the most resourceful and richest period of time in the history of mankind,- but our heritage for future generations seems poor and almost absent.
We ought to dare to think bigger and strain ourselves with the know-how and maschines that we posses today. -> The ambition should be no less than building a mountain.
