Events for expats in Copenhagen

Explore the diversity of Copenhagen!

Copenhagen is the city of residence to many people from around the world. Denmark – and its capital Copenhagen – is often perceived as a homogeneous society and not very open to outsiders – but is this really true?

During the Diversity Walk, participants will discover some of the diversity the city of Copenhagen encompasses – from gender, sexual orientation, religion to ethnicity. By visiting a number of key organisations/sites we will learn more about the diversity of Copenhagen.

The event, which takes place on October 23 2013, begins at 15.00 at International House (Gyldenløvesgade 11) and ends at Verdenskulturcentret (Fælledvej 7) at approximately 18.30. After that there is an optional dinner (own expense) at Café Baggården at the same address.

The event can be done either by foot or by bike (if you bring your own) – please bring appropriate clothing.

At the event you will meet – among others – the following organisations:

  • International House – a one-stop shop for foreigners in Denmark
  • Representatives of the Diversity Charter of Copenhagen City Council
  • Kvinfo – the Danish organisation of information on gender, equality and diversity
  • The Church association for the Inner Mission in Denmark
  • The World Culture Center (Verdenskulturcentret) – the cultural center in Copenhagen with a special focus on ethnic minorities
  • And the organiser, Work & Life Denmark – helping expats create a life of full of quality in Denmark

The event is free of charge. Please register here (limited seats available).

If you have to cancel after you have signed up, please send us an email at

We look forward to seeing you!

“The idea is that an area of a city is chosen and explored on foot, in teams, to seek out the diversity issues, which unfold there. The diversity walk is a great way to engage with issues of diversity in real time, as well as provoking active engagement and dialogue from all who take part!” British Council
