A green, particularly liveable and active city, the Danish capital was chosen by Smart Cities & Sport their annual summit taking place at the end of this year.
Usually, Smart Cities and Sport Summit is only hosted in an Olympic host city or the Olympic headquarter. The World Union of Olympic Cities has however, made an exception based on Copenhagen having hosted the 2009 IOC congress.
”As the National Olympic Committee of Denmark, we at DIF are very proud that Copenhagen will be the host city for Smart Cities & Sport. Copenhagen is a prime example of how to create urban environments that promote movement in everyday life. At the same time, the congress is a great start to the cooperation between the city of Copenhagen, DGI and DIF, which aims to make the capital the world’s most active city,” said Hans Natorp, chairman of DIF, NOC and Sports Confederation of Denmark.
