In early February, a group of Mayors of Culture and Leisure and their CEOs from the 6 largest cities in Denmark visited Singapore. The focus of their visit was to learn about Singapore’s culture.
The Danish Embassy had put together an intense programme for this Danish delegation to meet with various Singapore government agencies, where they had talks about project test beds in a smart city, challenge of balancing arts and culture in an academic-driven community, and preservation versus urbanization in a global city.
While here, Carsten Haurum, CEO of Culture and Leisure City of Copenhagen, delivered a lecture to share about Copenhagen’s success stories of refurbishing heritage buildings in a liveable city. The audience of about 250 included members of Singapores Civil Service, architects, urban planners, academia staff and consultants.
