Get an energy boost at the EEA during Kulturnatten

Change language
Topics: ,
Energy is the main theme as the EEA takes part in ‘Culture night’ (Kulturnatten) for the first time on Friday 13 October.

The programme kick-starts with a panel debate on bioenergy, an issue that has been the subject of a lot of debate in Denmark. This will be discussed by representatives from the Danish parliament, industry and the EEA. The remainder of the evening is more laid back and targeted at Copenhagen families with children. It includes games on the theme of “energy”, a theatre performance, music and organic food.

The EEA is taking part in Culture Night to improve its visibility among the local citizens and to inform and engage the public in discussions on the European environment in general and on energy and environment in particular.

In the panel to debate bioenergy in Denmark one will find Eyvind Vesselbo (Liberal/Venstre), Chairman of the energy committee of the Danish parliament; MP Anne Grete Holmsgaard (Socialist Party/SF), Lene Lange, research director from the Danish company Novozymes and Peder Jensen, transport expert from the EEA. The debate will be chaired by Karen Hjulmand from DR1.

For the rest of the evening an environmentally oriented “Treasure Hunt” will challenge participants with tasks to complete and questions to answer. A group of schoolchildren will perform a theatre piece on energy and the environment, based on the Danish storyteller H.C. Andersen’s fairytale The Nightingale. Musical entertainment will be provided by a vocal ensemble and an acoustic rock band. Organic food and drinks will be served during the evening.

The event takes place at Kongens Nytorv 28, from 1700 to 2200. See programme for details.
