The project attempts to design and develop a holistic system design that concerns abandoned bicycles in Copenhagen and the actors related to it. The system consists of subsystems, in which abandoned bicycles are collected and subsequently either recycled or reused. The project has been carried out in collaboration with Copenhagen municipality whose goal is to turn Copenhagen into the first carbon neutral city in 2025.
