Global Challenges and Local Solutions

We believe that Denmark’s integrated, value-based structures can be communicated to inspire innovation, strengthen design networks, and leverage scalable design strategies.

Scaledenmark offers livability and sustainability-focused lectures on Copenhagen and the Øresund Region both locally and abroad.

Lectures are typically structured for 45 minutes and can be customized by request.

We highly recommend our introductory lecture “Copenhagen as an Eco-Metropole” to all study tour participants, as it highlights an important overview of Denmark’s value-based structures represented in physical design solutions.
