Consumption Wall – Urban Intervention (Aarhus University)


“Could you have done without this piece of candy?” “Denmark is among the countries in the world with the highest consumption per capita” “Did you know that it takes 2,500 liters of water to produce a hamburger?” We could eat less. The Danish population eats a lot of meat, so I think we could eat less. What is your opinion about Denmark being one of the most consuming countries (per capita) in the world? It doesn’t really add up with the size of the country and everything. We throw away too much and have a substantial amount of waste. We take just because we can, not because we need it. It’s not about the things you have, but rather what you are and what you try to become. You do not become “something”, just because you have a lot of stuff, so I don’t think consumption will make us happy Happiness comes from within, it’s not something you can buy.
