From saving energy via bicycles to sustainable beer and architecture, and a 1.000 year old royal family that leads the way for the oldest kingdom of the world

In the four broadcasts CNN is describing the many initiatives found in the Danish capital aimed at reducing the environmental impact and carbon footprint.

The first broadcast labeled “’Copenhagenization' in the Danish Capital” is about the extensive use of bikes in the capital, where 50% of all personal transport is done on bikes, and the city does everything it can to make transport by bike the easiest and most convenient means of transportation.

The second broadcast labeled “A carbon neutral Copenhagen by 2025?” is about the various ways that the Danes and the city are aiming for Copenhagen being the first carbon neutral capital in the world by 2025.

The third broadcast labeled “Hedonistic sustainability in Copenhagen” is about sustainable living based on energy from wind mills and sustainable design and architecture as carried out by Bjarke Ingels and his BIG Architects firm, that is responsible for revolutionary buildings not only in Denmark, but around the world, including New York in 2012. The broadcast includes view of the soon to be build pioneering design of a power plant based on waste to energy, where Bjarke Ingels have placed a public ski slope on the roof. A design that is not just environmentally sustainable, but also socially sustainable.

The last broadcast “Renovating a palace in Copenhagen” describes not only how ordinary people in Copenhagen is aiming for being carbon neutral, but that the royal Danish family who has ruled the oldest kingdom of the world for 1.000 years, is leading the way.
