Ørsted and WWF invite children and young people into the world’s largest copy of the Earth

Get a unique 360-degree film experience of our planet, see the view from the top of an offshore wind turbine, and get close to endangered species in virtual reality.
Facts about the Climate Safari

On the Climate Safari, visitors can learn about endangered animals, watch a film about the state of the Earth, and go on a virtual reality trip to the top of an offshore wind turbine.

The Climate Safari globe is an amazing 26 metres high, and it will be located at Thorvaldsens Plads in central Copenhagen. It is open for school classes from 13 to 30 September and for families with children during the last three weekends of September.

The organisers expect more than 20,000 children, young people and adults to book a trip on the Climate Safari.

Admission is free, but there are a limited number of tickets. Book a ticket to visit the Climate Safari at orsted.dk/klimasafari. Questions concerning registration or the Climate Safari in general may be sent to klimasafari@orsted.dk.

In September, a giant globe will be landing in central Copenhagen – and with it, a chance for children, parents and school classes to be entertained and learn more about climate change and how to help fight the impacts of climate change.

 

Together with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Ørsted is inviting thousands of children, parents, school classes and teachers on a ‘Climate Safari’. The event will take place in the world’s largest copy of our home, the Earth, which can accommodate 300 visitors inside and 1,000 outside in an experience area. On the Climate Safari, visitors can get answers to questions about virtually everything regarding climate change, its consequences for animals and the natural world, green energy and offshore wind power.

 

Filip Engel, Senior Director in Ørsted, says:

 

“It’s the children and young people who’ll be building the green society of tomorrow. The Climate Safari is part of our contribution towards educating children and young people about climate change, the consequences of climate change, and the importance of going from black to green energy. There’s actually every reason to be optimistic on behalf of our shared home and all of us who live here. Green energy is now cheaper than black energy, so there’s absolutely no excuse for not accelerating the green transformation.”

 

Bo Øksnebjerg, Secretary General of WWF, explains:

 

“Drought, forest fires and melting ice caps are threatening the world’s nature and wildlife.  The consequences of climate change are clear for all to see. Fortunately, it’s not too late to reverse the trend, but we have to act quickly. This is why we’re inviting Danes on a Climate Safari where we’ll tell them about climate change and inspire them to take up the fight against global warming. The planet needs our help.”
