Danish School of Happiness: Lesson 1 [Video]

“Why is Denmark constantly ranked as one of the Happiest countries in the world?” 

We at Pine Tribe have noticed that things operate a bit differently here in Copenhagen. When you’re in the thick of it, you begin to understand why the Danes are so content with their lifestyle. Happiness is a side effect of the culture here—and it’s this culture we wish to share with the world.

Welcome to the Danish School of Happiness. Each lesson will address a different facet of cultural life here in Denmark. Our curriculum will take you through as many unique aspects of Danish culture as possible. We will explore the things like environment, food, and daily life as a whole

Today’s Lesson:

In today’s lesson, we show you how deeply rooted bicycle culture really is in the Danish community. We give you a quick history lesson of how bikes became so popular, as well as get the inside scoop on current bicycle culture from the Head of the Cycling Embassy of Denmark, actor and politician, Klaus Bondam. 

We then move onto the places you might visit on your bike—the green parks of Copenhagen. Green living is an important part of living in Denmark, and we show you why it is so easy for Danes to spend time in nature, even while living in the city.

Check out our first Lesson below, and stay tuned for more from The Danish School of Happiness!
