Recently, a train station in Germany chose to rebrand itself as a spin-off of our capital city, Kuala Lumpur, for three days

The German train station Schlump in Eimsbüttel, Hamburg, was renamed "Kuala Schlumpur" to highlight the issues such as long-term droughts, high temperatures, and increasing sea levels in the city, according to Hamburg Transport Association (HVV) via NDR.

The HVV also changed the names of several bus stops and metro stations to include the names of warmer countries to highlight the potential effects of climate change and raise public awareness around the issue.

Other renamed stations were also spotted in Germany.
