The project was conceived as a practical solution for the activists who were travelling to the UN Climate Summit in Copenhagen in 2009. The city was not ready to provide affordable accommodations for the huge amount of activists so the project secured free homestays for more than 3,000 people. Since then, the collective has developed an international network of guests and hosts matching locals and visiting artists, urban planners and activists with the specific knowledge and talents of residents. Human Hotel has become a curated travel network for creatives and visionaries open to applications from individual members.

The aim of the project is to implement a practical change in the ways in which both artists and cultural institutions work with—rather than around, or apart from—the people and structures of a particular place.
Free housing for over 3 000 climate activists coming to Copenhagen from over 100 countries.
