Wonderful Copenhagen! Venue for the 2023 Nordic Climate Conference!
Copenhagen, host to the 2023 Climate Conference is the capital and most populous city of Denmark, with a population of around 660 000 in the municipality and 1.4 million in the urban area.
Copenhagen was once a Viking fishing settlement, and you can still find traces of the Norse explorers here. Visit reconstructed villages, the remains of a 1,000-year-old castle, and museums dedicated to the notorious raiders. Copenhagen also features a blend of modern architecture and historical artifacts such as the Round Tower observatory – a wonderful example of 17th-century architecture. Art galleries, narrow streets, canals, parks, and Baroque churches round out the city’s cultural attractions.
The city is the cultural, economic and governmental centre of Denmark; it is one of the major financial centres of Northern Europe with the Copenhagen Stock Exchange. Copenhagen’s economy has developed rapidly in the service sector, especially through initiatives in information technology, pharmaceuticals and clean technology. Since the completion of the Øresund Bridge, Copenhagen has increasingly integrated with the Swedish province of Scania and its largest city, Malmö, forming the Øresund Region. With several bridges connecting the various districts, the cityscape is characterised by parks, promenades, and waterfronts and a large number of cyclists. Copenhagen’s landmarks such as Tivoli Gardens, the Little Mermaid statue, the Amalienbog and Christianbog palaces, Rosenborg Castle, Frederik’s Church, Børsen, and many museums,
restaurants and nightclubs are significant tourist attractions.
Copenhagen is also home to theUniversity of Copenhagen, theTechnical University of Denmark, Copenhagen Business School and the IT University of Copenhagen. The University of Copenhagen, founded in 1479, is the oldest university in Denmark.
A preconference seminar lead by Jens Olav Pepke Pedersen was held at DTU, the Technical University. DTU was founded in 1829 as the “College of Advanced Technology” The Physicist Hans Christian Ørsted, at that time a professor at the University of Copenhagen, was one of the driving forces behind this initiative. He was inspired by the École Polytechnique in Paris, France which Ørsted had visited as a young scientist. The new institution was inaugurated on 5 November 1829 with Ørsted becoming its Principal, a position he held until his death in 1851.
DTU has 25 departments ranging from Aqua to Space and 17 research Centers as well as a staff of 3500 and 11 000 students.
The main conference, however, was held in The Christiansborg Palace (Christiansborg Slot) a palace and government building on the islet of Slotsholmen in central Copenhagen.
It is the seat of the Danish Parliament (Folketinget), the Danish Prime Minister’s Office, and the Supreme Court of Denmark. Also, several parts of the palace are used by the Danish monarch, including the Royal Reception Rooms, the Palace Chapel and the Royal Stables.
The palace is thus home to the three supreme powers: the executive power, the legislative power, and the judicial power. It is the only building in the world that houses all three of a country’s branches of government. The name Christiansborg is thus also frequently used as a metonym for the Danish political system, and colloquially it is often referred to as Rigsborgen (‘the castle of the realm’) or simply Borgen (‘the castle’).
The present building, the third with this name, is the last in a series of successive castles and palaces constructed on the same site since the erection of the first castle in 1167. Since the early fifteenth century, the various buildings have served as the base of the central administration; until 1794 as the principal residence of the Danish kings and after 1849 as the seat of parliament.
The Conference was held in a great hall and we were welcomed not by a scientist, but by Pernille Vermund, Member of parliament and political leader of party “Nye Borgerlige”. The highlight of the day was the Keynote Speech by Marcel Crok, Director of Clintel. Clintels new book on the many serious faults in IPCC AR6 was sold by the entrance to the hall. For other speakers we refer to the program.
The standing conference lunch was very good, as always in Copenhagen, and during the stroll along famous street Strøget back to the hotel, some of us gathered in a restaurant and enjoyed the famous Tubog green beer.
