United Nations, New York, 8 June 2009: The United Nations is leading a powerful new campaign to encourage governments to seal the deal on a fair, balanced and effective agreement on climate change when they meet at the Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, in December 2009. There are many reasons why we need to seal the deal on a new climate change agreement and in this series, UN officials will look at how climate change is affecting various aspects of human development and how we can do something about it.

Inderhavnen Bridge, Copenhagen ( bridge length 180m, opening 50m ) Our design was the winner of an invited competition involving an opening pedestrian / cyclist bridge in the heart of Copenhagen. Among ten invited teams were also Zaha Hadid, Arup, 3XN, Henning Larsen etc. The bridge will link Nyhavn with a route leading to the new Opera House. The opening part utilises a unique sliding mechanism. Two large sculptural sliding cantilevers are held between visually and structurally subservient fixed decks. Even when the bridge is open people can stand on viewing platforms right at the edge of the navigation channel. It is thus possible to watch the bridge movement action and be literally within an arm's reach of the passing ships and boats - a unique experience on an opening bridge. The Jury...

Frederiksberg is a city within the city of Copenhagen. Frederiksberg has its own city council and mayor and also has its own feeling. Frederiksberg is a posh area and is known for nice flats, green parks, theatre life, delicacy shops etc. People have lived in Frederiksberg since the Bronze age, and in the Viking period a village came into being. Around 1700 the king of Denmark, Frederik IV, who lived in Copenhagen built a summerhouse on a hill just outside Copenhagen. The castle was named Frederiksberg Castle and the village at the foot of the hill was named Frederiksberg (Frederiks hill). Today Frederiksberg is a modern and densely populated part of Copenhagen.

Copenhagen Cityringen Project Over the past two years Copenhagen residents have witnessed a large fleet of Soilmec drill rigs, cranes and hydromills wedged in between residences and historic buildings throughout the heart of the city.

A complete explanation to the bishop from the Virgin about how he should exercise his episcopal office in order to give glory to God, and about the double reward for having held the rank of bishop in a true way and about the double disgrace for having held it in a false way, and about how Jesus Christ and all the saints welcome a true and up right bishop. Book 3 - Chapter 3 SAINT BRIDGET PATRON SAINT OF EUROPE PART I The Mother of God was speaking: "I wish to explain to the bishop what he should do for God and what will give glory to God. Every bishop must hold his miter carefully in his arms. He must not sell it for money nor give it up to others for the sake of worldly friendship nor lose it through negligence and lukewarmness. The bishop's miter signifies nothing other than the bishop'...
