Boat Ride 2017 in Copenhagen

Dear members, on the 8. June 2017 from 15:30-16:30 we will visit different destinations in Copenhagen harbor that are connected to the city’s water agenda. To do so, we rented a boat that will bring us close to various projects – which are either fully functional or still in the making. Our guide from HOFOR will narrate the tour and is happy to answer all our questions. Use the opportunity not only to learn more about Copenhagen’s water agenda, but also to meet your fellow young water professionals and to see the capital’s harbor from a new side. The tour is free of charge for you. Please sign-up for the event. We will meet on the 8. June 2017 at 15:20 in Nyhavn, Copenhagen, at the boat company “Nettobådene”.
