Warm up competitions


Several competitions will be organised in similar terrain until WMOC 2018. In particular, we recommend Danish Spring 2017 and 2018.


Environment and sustainability are of great concern to Copenhagen politicians, as you will learn more about in chapter 9. WMOC 2018 will implement our own sustainability strategy in the event, focusing on waste handling and food and beverage.


We plan on no visible waste in the arenas: It should be easy for both participants and spectators to see where and how to deposit waste. The standard must be very high for both sorting of waste, and for regular cleaning of the surroundings. To the benefit of both humans and nature.


Medical services will be available in the arenas. Danish emergency tephone number is 112. Emergency calls for police is 114.

Food and beverage in arenas

Food and drink will be served and offered in the arenas based on locally and regionally produced products. As far as possible, the products will be certified as organic.


We plan to organise Kindergarden in the arenas to the extend required.
