"Mottainai" & "Sharing"

In Japan, we have a word "Mottainai" which conveys a sense of regret concerning waste.

"Mottainai" means roughly “What a waste!” or “Don’t waste". Even though we have the word, we've wasted so many foods every day in Japan as well as other developed countries. If we use our creativity and imagination, we don't use a phrase "Mottainai" anymore.

How I relate to Christiania-

I had researched on Ecovillages in Denmark when I was a master student. I did interview with people who live there including in Christiania. Since then, I've been interested in their history, philosophy and activities.
