Te Kuiti, New Zealand and Timbuktu, Mali

From Cairo to Chennai, from Te Kuiti to Timbuktu, from Hobbiton to El Dorado, from LA to DC, from Kyoto to Kabul, we bring you ideas from innovative cities around the globe.

Copycat_city is a new blog gathering innovative and inspirational ideas from cities across the world.

Recent posts include a rooftop vegetable garden being installed in Vancouver, designed to grow vegetables using a fraction of the land, energy and water traditionally required. Another, in Paris, sees unwanted Christmas trees being dropped off and recycled for use by gardeners in the city’s parks. And for those wishing to burn off the post-holiday calories in Copenhagen’s parks, an ingenious set of lights guide runners, allowing them to set an individual pace for their workout.
