By Yatziri Michicich-Ochoa at CIEE

As the Program Leader for CIEE's Taking Climate Action High School Abroad program, I recently led our 13 students on an enriching walking tour of Copenhagen, guided by our teacher, Niels. We explored the city's history and culture, learning essential "Survival Danish" phrases and discovering landmarks. The students embraced Danish values and the concept of "hygge," gaining confidence and enthusiasm for their time in Copenhagen. Stay tuned for more updates from our journey!
