This program spends two weeks immersed in biking culture in Copenhagen. Copenhagen is the capital city of Denmark and sits next to the North Sea. This picturesque city has many shops, cafes and restaurants along its historic streets. It is also ranked as one of the happiest cities in the world. Residents report high life satisfaction, good health and a high quality of life. Copenhagen is widely known as the most bike-oriented city in the world, and upwards of 40% of all trips in the city are taken via bicycle! Consequently, there are significant environmental, social and cultural supports for biking.
Students will have an opportunity to observe bicycle infrastructure and multi-modal transportation solutions, learn from programs and policies that support biking and learn about the role of biking in sustainable, livable communities. The required course for this program will be taught from a multi-disciplinary perspective to address the complex issues associated with biking. Activities and assignments will be focused on applying information and content to other countries and communities.
Field trips will include visits to Lund, Sweden and Odense, Denmark. Bike rentals will be provided and will be the primary form of travel around the city. Basic bicycle riding skills will be necessary, though the city is fairly flat and well designed for bicycles. Helmets are strongly suggested. Bike tours and site visits will highlight how community, environment, policy and urban design facilitate bike travel. Students will also learn about the social and cultural aspects of biking in Copenhagen.
Summer: This program will not run in summer 2021, but hopes are that program operation will resume in 2022. Contact the faculty leader or check back for information about future travel on this program.
