Copenhagen offers various sustainable transportation options, from the airport to the Bella Center. Here are some eco-friendly ways to travel:

  • Metro: The most convenient and eco-friendly way is to take the Metro directly from Copenhagen Airport to Bella Center. The Metro runs frequently, is efficient, and has a minimal environmental impact. The Bella Center has its own station, named “Bella Center Station,” making it a convenient choice.
    Further information on www.m.dk.
  • Public Bus: Public buses are also available from the airport to Bella Center. While not as direct as the Metro, they are a viable option. Look for buses that stop close to the Bella Center or connect to nearby Metro stations.
    Bus timetables can be found on the transport company DOT’s website. You can also use the website Rejseplanen to plan your trip with public transport.
  • Electric Taxis or Car-Sharing Services: Look for electric or hybrid taxis or opt for car-sharing services that prioritise eco-friendly vehicles. Several companies provide electric cars for rent by the minute within the city.

During the entire Meeting, attire will be informal.

Free WiFi is available to all meeting participants throughout the venue.
