The Good Advice Project, Copenhagen


Based on the simple notion of ‘caring and sharing’, Copenhagen-based designer Jacob Lysgaard and photographer Hanne Hvattum teamed up to create the Good Advice Project 2011.

 The duo asked residents of Copenhagen: “Let's make the world better, by sharing what we know.” Randomly approached, people were asked to handwrite a note of advice – which are now posted on their project website.

‘Remember to open up to other cultures, and to each other. You should not be afraid of what is different. Remember to be polite – and do not think that we are the centre of the universe,’ writes Emma, Copenhagen.
