What It’s Like to Ski on Copenhagen’s New Slope—Atop a Massive Waste-to-Energy Plant

A big industrial waste-to-energy plant in Copenhagen fashionable?!? A first for Vogue!

CopenHill, also known as Amager Bakke, made its grand debut in October 2019 after nearly ten years of development. Designed by the Danish architect Bjarke Ingels, the silver, triangular-shaped building is a green power plant that takes in all of the non-recyclable garbage from the city—around 1,000 tons per day—incinerates it, and turns it into renewable energy for some 100,000 households in Copenhagen. Low-carbon steam from the incineration process gets released into the air through a silo that marks the top of the ski hill on the roof, which is open year-round. Instead of snow, the hill is covered with natural grass and an eco-friendly fiber called Neveplast, which is made using no harmful chemicals or materials. Read More:

Tree Hugging for Corona Virus?

The science of nature, trees and even looking at nature to improve immune function and increase immunity against coronavirus. It's REAL - and totally fascinating!

Studies show health benefits from having a window with a view of a tree (Ulrich, 1984) and even from spending time with a potted plant (Grinde and Patil, 2009). Adding natural elements to paved school playgrounds has also been found to improve children’s health (Bell, 2008). Believe it or not, even gazing at nature-themed artwork can boost attention and minimize fatigue (Tennessen and Cimprich, 1995). All these actions are likely to improve immune function either directly or indirectly.Read More:
