Want to cover Denmark’s green transition?
State of Green offers international media a chance to visit Denmark and experience our green solutions.
State of Green is connected to the key stakeholders within sustainable energy, water, circular economy and city solutions in Denmark. As a public-private partnership, we have an extensive network of contacts and can connect you to businesses, civil society organisations, research institutions as well as politicians or public servants from ministries, agencies and municipalities.
Due to the health crisis, State of Green will only to a very limited extent be organising physical press visits until the situation normalises. However, State of Green will maintain daily operations and you are more than welcome to contact us with any requests you might have.
State of Green assists reporters and media crews with the planning of a customised programme to visit facilities where green solutions are implemented. We can help you with ideas for stories, planning visits, setting up interviews, finding data and facts to back-up the Danish story and general information about the green Denmark. Since 2008, we have assisted more than 1,000 journalists from around the world.
What to visit
Sustainable and renewable solutions are implemented across Denmark and with the help of State of Green, it is possible to visit many of them. If you need inspiration, you can explore 1500 green Danish solutions through our webportal.
How to plan a visit
If you are already planning a visit to Denmark or would like to, please contact State of Green by submitting a visit request. We will get back to you within 1-2 business days.
