Join us for two days of inspiring talks and stories that nourish the senses, spark innovation and give a platform to quieter voices.
With inspiring international and Scandinavian speakers, a Friday evening welcome reception and a Sunday afternoon finish, the event will help you discover Copenhagen, and leave you with a new view on the world.
Skandinavisk has teamed up with The DO Lectures, the inspirational ideas festival, to bring two days of thought-provoking talks and workshops to Copenhagen.
DO Copenhagen aims to inspire, delight and set you off on a path of thinking about different ways to be.
All washed down with refreshments from some of Copenhagen’s leading artisans. You will be welcomed with a light meal on the Friday night, a full Saturday of activity and entertainment, and depart sated after a Sunday morning program and long lunch together.
*Ticket price covers every waking hour, but accommodation is not included. Ticket holders will have access to preferential rates at neighbouring eco-luxury hotel, Villa Copenhagen.
We’ve always said that living more Scandinavian is not just about which part of the world you come from, it’s also how you think, how you treat others and the nature that surrounds you, and what you treasure.
We believe a more Scandinavian approach to life offers a blueprint for a better future. We’ve been telling stories about it for over a decade, through our fragrances and our home and body products, our annual Voices journal and our social media channels.
With DO Copenhagen, we’re turning it all into an immersive live event.
- Scandiphiles and those interested in Scandinavian culture, food and lifestyle
- Green living advocates seeking inspiration
- Entrepreneurs and change-makers looking for new business models and ways of thinking
- Curious travellers who also want to visit 3 Days of Design or experience the World Architecture Capital of 2023
- Midsummer, hygge and happiness junkies
From our courtyard in the heart of Copenhagen, we will take you on a journey around the different sensory aspects of life in Scandinavia.
You will meet a polar explorer and a professional mermaid. A conflict mediator and a former drug dealer turned spy. A published author on Danishness and one on Danish design. A food forager and a biodynamic chef. A rose gardening ICU specialist and an unconventional Lego executive. A guru on friendliness and a jolly choirmaster.
Get ready to embark on this journey of discovery, of inspiration, and of sensory fulfilment in our secret courtyard, right in the heart of beautiful Copenhagen.
Join us in one of the world’s happiest countries, in one of its most sustainable cities, for gentle thought provocation and sensory stimulation in a charming, down-to-earth Danish fashion.
Steps from the famous ‘Borgen’ Danish parliament and the National Museum, our courtyard is an oasis in the heart of the city and the starting point for our event.
You’ll experience thoughtfully designed and intimate lecture and workshop areas surrounding a generous flower-filled outdoor space in which to enjoy the light and warmth of a Danish midsummer.
The event takes place in association with the DO Lectures, the acclaimed encouragement network, known for its intimate, inspiring speakers and life-changing impact.
Skandinavisk Founder Shaun and Creative Director Line have a long history with DO, as guests and contributors to DO events in the United Kingdom. They are now looking forward to hosting the first ever ‘DO City’ event with the support of David, Clare and the original DO team.
