During the feast we’ll engage in conversations, most likely following the Borgerlyst (in Danish) concept of a “conversation menu” with topics for disussion/contemplation.

We might try to bring this topic to the table regarding “HOT” The Humanitarian OSM Team

“These ethical issues amount to a new colonial mentality in mapping”

Place Memes: The Hubris of Proactive Disaster Mapping
PLACE-MEMES.BLOGSPOT.COM|BY GWILYM

The proactive are the new colonialists that show arrogance at a distance, a smiliar critique exists of wikipedians that are branded as “amateurs” and “gratis-ayatollahs” that damages “real” encyclopedias (and maps)

Document The Danish Constitution

We’ll end the day by taking to the streets and try to document as many places as possible related to the Danish Constitution.
