The exhibition What if…? cities is ongoing until the Climate Change Conference 2009 in Copenhagen. Meanwhile the staff of Louisiana organise workshops with several schools from Denmark. We publish today the sentence produced by those students. They’ve been asked to finish up the question What if? and in the workshop they build their own cities (starting around their own school) and thinking of how to make the city more sustainable.
