Organic Copenhagen

The sale of organic products in Copenhagen is dramatically on the rise. More restaurants, cafes and even hotels are riding the "green wave" that is pushing the city to a whole new level of eco-consciousness - far beyond the prevalent health food shops. Copenhagen has green ambitions, which is evident by the variety and quality of organic goods on offer.
Copenhagen is one of the organic world leaders
There is an explosive demand for Danish organic goods and only few other metropolitan cities in the world can match Copenhagen's share of consumption of organic foods: Today, the private sector's purchase of organic products in Copenhagen is about 10-12 percent, and 45 percent of all food consumed in the city's institutions is organic - that is the world's record. To ensure Copenhagen continued development, the environmental strategy "Environment Metropolis - Our Vision 2015" has set targets for organic food consumption up to 90 percent by 2015 in all of the city's institutions. The target for private businesses and households purchase and consumption is expected to reach at least 20 percent.
Gourmet organic food
Copenhageners' organic consciousness is also making its mark outside of the political world. A new league of restaurants, cafes and delis are sprouting up over the previous eco-community centres and vegetarian restaurants. Out with idealistic declarations and in with common sense, a desire for clean (Nordic) produce and sustainable relations with nature's resources. Copenhagen's shining star among these eateries is Geranium located in Kongens Have, the King's Garden. The restaurant is run by two of Denmark's best chefs, Rasmus Kofoed and Søren Ledet. The team uses organic and biodynamic ingredients exclusively - that goes for the wines as well which come from around the globe.Rasmus Kofoed describes Geranium's food as Danish and organic with a lot of vegetables and herbs. They enjoy updating classic dishes - for example serving a lavish version of a Danish stew. Rasmus Koefed is a double medallion winner of the prestigious Bocuse D'Or, the world cuisine contest, which is a chef's equivalent to a world championship.
Copenhagen Metro now runs from airport.

A new stretch of the Copenhagen Metro has opened. The new addition runs to and from Copenhagen airport to city centre and is a boon to tourists, business travellers and Copenhageners, making it possible to travel from the airport to the city centre in just 15 minutes.

Travel between the airport and Copenhagen city centre in just 15 minutes! After years of preparation, the new stretch of the Copenhagen Metro to and from Kastrup Airport has opened, making it easier and faster for tourists as well as locals to travel to and from the airport. The Copenhagen Metro is the most modern in the world, and the new extension has been integrated into overall Metro operations without any negative effect on reliability, which in the first six months of 2007 was 98,5 percent.

The new stretch

The new stretch is 4,5 kilometre long and runs from Copenhagen Airport, Kastrup, to Lergravsparken along the eastern shoreline of Amager, stopping at the new four-kilometre-long beach Amager Strandpark. The line extends through the centre of Copenhagen to Frederiksberg and Vanløse.

Facts on the Copenhagen

MetroRegardless of where you are staying, the beach, shopping, open countryside and links to foreign countries are just a short Metro ride away. Weighing 52 tons and measuring 39 metres by 2,65 metres, a Copenhagen Metro train is a lightweight compared to the traditional Metro trains used in other cities. It is these physical dimensions, the driverless system and the electronic monitoring and safety systems that give the Metro the unprecedented flexibility suited to the needs of a rapidly developing city. Each train can hold 300 passengers. And with a frequency of 100 seconds at peak times, you can get from A to B with great regularity.

To the residence of Copenhagen


This effort is to assist in openning doors to the greater world of who you are as well as others through Inter - Cultural Communications via the internet.

This blog and the associated website is based upon the principle of cultural democracy. What this means is that you the community - online ( because your are now using a computer to read this ) user has the means to impact your community with others through your contribution to what is being published on the internet about your community. A community has many voices, and those who are not aware of either your community or the diversity among your very own people should be likewise known.

This is a mirror reflection of us all, and depicts the very differences each community has, which then becomes the very scoiocultural richness and valuable assests we need to maintain a rich an full life -individually. Moreover, this effort was started as a result when suggestions were offered by two Cornell student's emails - right after I place Ithaca Night Life ( NightLife ), NY online. Since then I have cover many other communities, and have enlisted help from the very same communities I have covered in my Night Life ( NightLife ), RMC series of blogs, journalsites and websites. Emails come in daily.


First go the main Hub - Website :

Then go to these following websites:

National and Internation Social Dance Registry to register your community's weekly socials. Offer suggestions to Night Life ( NightLife ), RMC Art Gallery - Galleries, Artists and Art Studio Guides, Night Life ( NightLife ), RMC - Night Sport Clubs - Nite Spots Guide, and suggest listings and others items not being covered.

The Mission of the Night Life ( NightLife ), RMC Network
[ Cultural Democracy ]

Cultural Communications:

Cultural communications is the very heart of this system, and through the internet a free flow flow of information network has already been established to allow this to happen. What is being done, is that an intiative based upon cultural democracy has been now established for your the community online user to participate. More importantly, for those who are contributing valued information getting known on the internet too!

All too often, several events are simply not know by travelers, tourist, or those who are looking for communities to move and live. It is envisioned by this process that events become both known, and popular at the sametime. Moreover, new talent is happening all the time, and thus should likewise be promoted too!

Beyond that, is the emergence of the event provider, and thus system become even more crucial, and for two very important respects.

One: The promotion of the community itself, as represented in its entertainment value.

Two: The economic activity it establishes by which industries are likewise locally developed.

Thus this crucial initiative and where it starts for you is on this webpage...
