DRUID DISCOVERIES EXCURSIONS

 

DRUID DISCOVERY 1: MICROGEOGRAPHY IN A MACRO BREWERY 

Registration and pre-payment required (deadline June 13)

Tuesday, June 14, 17:00-19:00

Meeting point: CBS head entrance (lobby). Do not be late. We cannot guarantee that latecomers can join.

Founded in 1847, Carlsberg is the world’s fifth largest brewery, but it is also a city in itself. With the shifting of brewing activities to other locations, the location of the Carlsberg headquarters, neighbouring CBS and DRUID16, is now undergoing a complete transformation to the Carlsberg City. This will become a new part of Copenhagen with a unique microgeography mixing housing, business, arts and culture, and with Carlsberg’s 100-year old, magnificent Historicist buildings sitting next to state-of-the art architecture. To top off the feeling of an emerging microgeography, the Carlsberg City also features a microbrewery. It is not unlikely that we will get a chance to sample its quality…

Guided tour, fees and beer samples included.

Excursion ends at the meeting point for the DRUID Conference Dinner.

 

DRUID DISCOVERY 2: COPENHAGENIZE! THE MICROGEOGRAPHY OF CYCLING 

Registration and pre-payment required (deadline June 13) 

Tuesday, June 14, 17:00-19:00

Meeting point: CBS head entrance (lobby). Do not be late. We cannot guarantee that latecomers can join.

Copenhageners of all ages and denominations love their bike almost like a member of the family, and 45% of Copenhageners cycle to work on a daily basis. Copenhagenize! is becoming a mantra for city planners around the world trying to emulate Copenhagen’s particular microgeography facilitating cycling. Join us in a cycle trip, guided by locals, into Copenhagen’s fun, picturesque and sometimes architectonically innovative  cycling lanes, paths and bridges. You may not look like the locals wearing suits and stilettos and carrying children, dogs and the weekend’s shopping on your funky designer bike, but there is room for everyone on Copenhagen’s safe cycle lanes, and you do not need to be an ardent cyclist to join. Guided tour in small groups. Bikes and protective rain gear provided.

Excursion ends at the meeting point for the DRUID Conference Dinner.

 

DRUID DISCOVERY 3: HACKERS AND MAKERS: THE MICROGEOGRAPHY OF LABITAT COPENHAGEN 

*Cancelled* -refund or transfer to another excursion by contacting Information Desk 

Tuesday, June 14, 17:00-19:00

Meeting point: CBS head entrance (lobby). Do not be late. We cannot guarantee that latecomers can join.

Hackerspaces (sometimes called makerspaces) are workspaces where inventors in ICT, the sciences, and sometimes also cultural industries, meet, socialize and collaborate. The physical microgeography of hackerspaces is crucial to their sense of community and physical interaction of users, often fostering valuable recombination of the knowledge they bring to the space. Labitat, Copenhagen’s oldest and largest hackerspace, invites you to a unique, up-close and intimate tour of its microgeography and a peak at the sometimes very fuzzy front end of tomorrow’s innovation!

Guided tour, transport included. Excursion ends at the meeting point for the DRUID Conference Dinner.
