World Changer

Alex Steffan
Alex Steffan, the founder of Worldchanging.com was in town and we met up for a coffee and a walkabout through the city.

If you don't know World Changing, check it out. In my opinion it's the most interesting, important and thought-provoking environmental website out there. Quality contributors and writing, a wide range of issues covered and a tone of seriosity that you don't get from 'other' environmental websites.

As for our hooking up, it was actually so refreshing to talk about stuff other than bicycles. Instead it was good chatting about urban planning, sustainability and general topics of interest. This is high season for foreign journalists visiting Copenhagen and it's threefold this year, what with COP15 - Climate Conference coming up in December, so I was all talked out about bikes this past fortnight.

Bikes are the "gateway drug" that brings people to the need for better urban planning. I love meeting people like who have a passion for changing our cities.

As a practicing urban planner myself, I find it refreshing to hear you often speak about urban planning and its direct correlation with improving public space and of course bicycle. Your blogs are well beyond the average bicycle blog and are informed and above all engaging. They are pretty damn funny too!

Cheers
