Meet Nadja Pass and Andreas Lloyd – co-founders of Civic Desire
We founded the community lab Borgerlyst – Civic Desire – because we wanted to become more active citizens. We wanted to make a difference in-between elections and referendums. But we had no idea how to go about it, since we didn’t want to buy an entire package of ideas and ideals from one party nor play just another small part in a huge unionized machinery.
That is why we decided to develop the tools, meeting facilities and forms of collaboration we longed for ourselves. And we wanted to see how far two regular citizens could take a project without having any money, applying for funds, founding a company or being backed by a big corporation. A project living solely on our civic desire.
These are some of the tools we have come up with – feel free to test them. You can meet some of the people we have met. And you can learn what we have learned during the first five years of Borgerlyst. We hope it will inspire you to get started yourself.
