We are delighted to have the Danish School of Education (DPU) as a venue to host the RECE conference in 2018, in cooperation with Roskilde University, Department of People and Technology.

Roskilde University (RUC) was established 1972, originally in order to challenge academic traditions and to experiment with new ways to create and acquire knowledge. RUC cultivates a project and problem-oriented approach to knowledge creation, because of a belief that the most relevant results are obtained by solving real problems in collaboration with others. RUC also cultivates transparency, because of a passionate belief that participation and knowledge sharing are prerequisites for freedom of thought, democracy, tolerance and development.

Staying in Copenhagen

Copenhagen offers a variety of accommodation possibilities. The RECE 2018 venue is very centrally located and close to public transportation. Your choice of accommodation can easily be across the entire city. Experience the essence of Danish design in one of Copenhagen design hotels in the hip Vesterbro district, or save your money for exploring and choose one of Copenhagen's many budget-friendly hotel and hostels. Visit Copenhagen offers a great overview of accommodation possibilities.

Weather

October is considered part of autumn in Denmark, and daytime temperatures usually range between 8-12 degrees Celsius (50 degrees Fahrenheit), with overnight temperatures ranging from the single digits to 0 degrees Celsius.

It is advisable to pack the following:

  1. Umbrella
  2. Windbreaker
  3. Closed toe shoes
  4. Scarf or shawl
  5. Long Pants

Currency

Denmark has its own currency Krone. It is however 'locked' to the euro. 1 Danish Krone is 0,13 € (currently 0,16 US$).

Getting Around in Copenhagen

Amongst many Copenhageners, the bicycle is the preferred means of transport year around, but the weather in October is not always suited for cruising around by bike! There are many possibilities for bike rental, if you wish to "do it the Copenhagen way"!

Public Transportation

The public transportation in Copenhagen takes you everywhere, and trains, Metro and busses (including waterbuses) can be accessed with the same ticket. All you need to know is how many zones you will pass on your journey. You can buy single tickets at most train stations (and at the airport) or download the app “DOT Mobilbilletter”, which lets you buy tickets on the go. The most used travel planner is Rejseplanen, which can be accessed through your browser, or you can download the app.

The City Pass or The Copenhagen Pass might be a cheaper solution if you plan to use public transportation throughout the conference.

City Pass

With a City Pass, you can enjoy unlimited travel on buses, trains and the metro in Copenhagen in zones 1-4, from the moment you arrive in Copenhagen via the airport. You can buy the tickets upon arrival in the airport or in advance, in order for you to travel easily from and to the airport without having to think about where to purchase tickets, the types of tickets available or travel zones. Prices: 24 hours City Pass (Adult: 11 €), 72 hours City Pass (Adult: 27€)

Copenhagen Card

The Copenhagen Card combines public transportation, sightseeing admissions and various discounts. You get unlimited travel on trains, busses, metro and harbour busses throughout the entire capital region, including to and from the airport, and many tourist activities are free with the card. Available as a 24, 48, 72, or 120 hour card. The prices are (respectively): 53€, 74€, 89€ or 120€.

What to see and do in Copenhagen

One of the great things about Copenhagen is that almost everything is within walking distance, and walking is really the best way to explore the city. If you have time on your hand, you can visit one of many museums in Copenhagen, stroll along in the old or medieval neighbourhoods or visit Christiania. Other places worth visiting may be found on VisitCopenhagen.com


Culture Night - Friday, October 12th

Copenhagen's annual Culture Night kicks off the autumn break in Copenhagen and offers children and adults hundreds of cultural events in just one night: museums, churches, exhibition halls, art galleries, humanitarian organisations, political and cultural institutions open their doors to their secret rooms, basements, towers, and cultural events on this one night only. Whether you wish to experience the Supreme Court, parliament or simply take a stroll in the streets - Culture Night is simply beautiful.

The whole city is an integral part of Culture Night, and the range of cultural institutions and venues mirrors how versatile Copenhagen is. There are hundreds of events for all ages, so do not hesitate to bring the kids to Culture Night in Copenhagen.
