Freetown Christiana

In 1971 residents of Copenhagen took over a 84 acre section of the city, turning it into an independent intentional community. It remained legally independent until 2013.

The objective of Christiania is to create a self-governing society whereby each and every individual holds themselves responsible over the well-being of the entire community. Our society is to be economically self-sustaining and, as such, our aspiration is to be steadfast in our conviction that psychological and physical destitution can be averted.
