The Local Urban Vibe and Social Sustainability
We experience the neighbourhoods of Nørrebro and Østerbro. We ride off the beaten tracks and discover hidden gems like urban farms, vegan bakeries, climate neighbourhoods and recreational areas like Superkilen.
The Sustainable Copenhagen of the Future
You learn about the ambitious climate plans of Copenhagen, which is planning to be the world’s first carbon-neutral capital in 2025. We discover some exciting sustainable and green places in the centre of Copenhagen, such as bike bridges, solar installations, green roofs, harbour pools, green architecture, energy-efficient buildings and wind turbines.
You will hear about green initiatives for reducing pollution from cars by stimulating the use of bicycles. Your guide will introduce how energy consumption is lowered when buildings are made more efficient and how offices are cooled with cold water from the harbour. You will also hear about the district heating system that relies on waste incineration. While the Danish rules for new construction are very demanding regarding energy and resource efficiency, the old buildings are also being renovated systematically and definitely when owners change.
Nordhavn is being developed into Copenhagen’sustainable neighbourhoods of the future to support the city of becoming CO2-neutral in 2025. The history of the industrial harbour offers inspiration for its development.
