Inner City Dialogues

Regitze Hess
& special guests Peter Rømer and Heidi Meier

How do we see tourism as a resource for urban development?

Is inner city Copenhagen is a bubble? Is it livable or loveable?
A big question is whether Copenhagen is reaching a tipping point in terms of fabulousness? Is tourism overloading the inner city? Is Copenhagen as a city staying on top of its game in terms of urban sustainability, livability and resilience for all citizens, both residents and day trippers? What attributes of the historic inner city do we cherish and need to sustain? What new innovations do we need to infuse? Bearing in mind to foster a city for people, takes people for cities! And for all its hype, inner Copenhagen still retains pockets offering a peace of mind and hidden treasurers to be explored!
