We’re starting our series with Copenhagen, the Danish capital and one of Scandinavia’s — and indeed, Europe’s — coolest conurbations. With its extensive bike networks, commitment to renewable energy and green-friendly hotels, it’s a city with sustainability at its heart. Add to this some pretty impressive architecture, striking design credentials and a truly impressive culinary landscape, it’s no wonder it receives the title of a ‘modern-day fairy tale’.
In recent years the motivation to reduce our impact on the planet has rapidly accelerated, with groups like Extinction Rebellion making international news and long-time climate change activists calling for immediate action. We already know that the way we currently live causes irreparable damage to the planet, and that something must be done to reduce carbon emissions, the use of plastics and other non-recyclable materials in everyday life and to conserve a better way of living to protect the Earth from further harm.
