For the second year in a row, the European Environment Agency in Copenhagen opens its doors to the public during The Night of Culture on Friday 12 October. In recognition of the International Polar Year, climate change and the impact on the Arctic is the overall theme.

The Night of Culture is the yearly event, where institutions such as museums, the zoo, ministries and other public bodies in Copenhagen open their doors to citizens.

'We wish to improve our visibility amongst the local population and engage citizens in discussions about EU environmental priorities. We want to make EU more accessible for citizens and on The Night of Culture, we aim to reach the environmental ministers of the future. Therefore, we have put together a programme, which specifically targets families', says EEA head of communications Marion Hannerup.

Among many activities, children can meet their television idol from Danish natural science programmes and watch a theatre performance based on the Danish storyteller H.C. Andersen's fairytale, 'The Snow Queen'. At the same time, their parents can enjoy the photo exhibition 'Changing Climate — Changing People' by a Pulitzer Prize winning photographer.

The event takes place at Kongens Nytorv 6, from 17.00. See full programme for details.
