this week in copenhagen. by 2025, the danes hope this will become the world's very first carbon neutral city. we send cat to find out how they are getting on. it is claimed more than two—thirds of these people waste is recycled and 30% of all of their energy consumption comes from renewable energy sources. they even
say the harbour is enough to swim in. not something i will be trying a cold winters day. instead, i am on a free electric boat available to hire here in copenhagen. it is charged back at the dock with solar panels so back at the dock with solar panels so that means no noisy engines and low c02 so that means no noisy engines and low co2 emissions. this green drive has had another added push with the opening of a new tourist attraction. built on top of the unlikeliest of buildings, a power station. fuelled by waste and build is one of the most environmentally friendly plants of its kind, opened last month, it spans more than 40,000 square metres. the slope i am on works its way from the bottom all the way up the side of the building and it is open every day of the week for
hikers, sightseers and even skiers. the seized —— ski slope is made from a slippery synthetic material which is coloured green to stop it from discolouring. so they are stilljust doing a little bit of work up here but look, right over there, that is sweden which is very cool and on the other side, we have this amazing view of copenhagen. and how did you quys view of copenhagen. and how did you guys come view of copenhagen. and how did you guys come up with putting a ski slope up here? one of the things we realised quite quickly is if you ta ke realised quite quickly is if you take a section of the building, stepped down from low to high, to the flu gas treatment areas all the way up to about 90 metres. 0ne the flu gas treatment areas all the way up to about 90 metres. one of the other things about denmark is danes love to ski but denmark is com pletely danes love to ski but denmark is completely flat so they will drive
for three hours to sweden to ski on a slope that is about 80 metres high so we a slope that is about 80 metres high so we quickly realised that since we have mountains of trash apparently, we could turn it into mountains of recreation and skiing that could come a public amenity in the very centre of the city of copenhagen. sustainability is looked at as a protesta nt sustainability is looked at as a protestant act. sustainability is it something that is seen of as you have to do less of something and have to do less of something and have less life experience but what we really wanted to do with this project is to express that somehow sustainability can be something that is positive, fun and actually gives more back to people and to the city. inside, a glass lifter shows people the inner workings of the powerstation. and tools are available as an apres ski activity.
there seems to be a mix of leftover tree branches but also general waste as well. we seared both from households and industries. all the waste that cannot be recycled. how often could do these trucks come because there seems to be a very steady flow, even just in the past few minutes. we have around 300 lorries coming in on a daily basis. inside the waste silo, giant grabbers mix the rubbish before dropping it into the furnace. this is where the waste is being incinerated. i will show you over here. it is quite a sight. this is like staring into the pits of hell.
the plant generates electricity and potentially enough annual heating to 150,000 homes. we have waste in copenhagen, we will keep on producing it. and the rest of the world so this is a product thatis of the world so this is a product that is already here so we might as well use it for something reasonable. back on the scots -- slope, it is time for me to get my skis on. i haven't been on a dry ski slope for maybe 15 years. you will have fun. it is quite different was up have fun. it is quite different was up speed is your friend. speed is my friend? yes, definitely. i don't really know how this is going to go.

seeing dubrovnik on a shoestring. recommending the best greek island for a cut—price may —— meas brace that may escape and the tricky business of international rail travel. first though, the world's old est travel. first though, the world's oldest city, yakutsk in north—eastern siberia, is now easier to reach. a new railway line connects you to the rest of the russian rail network, almost. the wide river stops the line just short of the city but in winter when the river is frozen, vehicles take passengers the short river —— the sort —— short stint to yakutsk and in the summer, there are ferries. back here in europe, bethany hughes wa nts to back here in europe, bethany hughes wants to know... dubrovnik and budget. they used to go well together in the same sentence but croatia's most
beautiful city is now very firmly on the tourist trail. as a result, prices for everything from coffee to souvenirs have and finding bargains is challenging. for eating, drinking, chilling and quite possibly sleeping, i urge you to consider cavtat. at 30 minute drive from dubrovnik. this ancient town was once a greek outpost, a roman colony and is now a backwater without the crowds and the high prices of dubrovnik. edward mcgarry has a romantic plan for 2020. a plan to take my fiance to a greek island for rest and relaxation. i was looking at crete, kia... one island for rest and relaxation. i was looking at crete, kia. .. one of the most romantic greek islands as the most romantic greek islands as
the island of milos, it's only a short way away from martin's bay ferry, it has great coups in. many viewers have got in touch to say they want to switch from air to rail, but some say that they are finding it very difficult to source international train tickets. i have many years experience of organising rail travel in europe, and regretfully i still haven't found an agent who can successfully connect any two points on the continent. however, i hope they can help you reach the swedish capital.
because you know exactly where you wa nt to because you know exactly where you want to be when, i don't recommend into rail. instead, a recommend you use french railways, from their german railways can get you to copenhagen and several hops, but on a single ticket, and swedish ra i lwa ys a single ticket, and swedish railways will go from the danish capital to stockholding and under six hours. earlier you book and the more flexible you can be, the lower the cost. wherever you are heading, i'm here to help stopping just send in your questions, my will do my very best to find you an answer. from me, the global guru, by for now and see you next time. rwanda has just popped the 2020 africa destination list, and i am here in the capital kigali. the city as a
hub for new start—ups, it has a buzzing art scene and great local entertainment. but while most travellers with through here to get entertainment. but while most travellers with thr this here to get entertainment. but while most travellers with thr this is are to get entertainment. but while most travellers with thr this is thanks, t person i'd talk to. this is thanks, in no small part, to the national made an rwanda initiative. it's a movement to support and inspire local businesses, and the maiden rwanda label is now a badge of honour. this all reflects the new rwandan identity. no longer divided along ethnic or tribal lines. i'm at the house of teo where this design is set up shop eight years ago, and he has seen his brand really grow in
popularity since the launch of maiden rwanda. he has even seen his clothes on the runway of black panther. i try to utilise as much local talent and expertise as i can. it is very important that we build a local ecosystem of models, photographers, lighting experts. 0nly photographers, lighting experts. only when we do that we can say that we have a localfashion industry. i'm dying to find out about the wakanda i'm dying to find out about the wa kanda suit. the i'm dying to find out about the wakanda suit. the suit was made remotely and teo worked photographs, working right down to the wire. got to him about three or four hours the actual premier. cutting it fine! bloodshot eyes because you have not slept? even when he got the suit, i was not even sure it would fit. it
was not even sure it would fit. it was an important time for rwandan fashion. teo and other designers are not only thriving here in rwanda, a are also selling their goods abroad. fashion isn't the only thing that is growing here thanks to the maiden rwanda slogan stopping music and dance has always been away for people to express themselves, and you can't go far here without hearing a drumbeat. this is one of east africa's largest art centres, with a range of cultural experiences. how do a look? good? i've noticed is real sense of pride to be rwandan. why is this dance so symbolic of rwandan culture? to be rwandan. why is this dance so symbolic of rwandan culture ?m helps the kids have some sort of identity to grow, understanding the dance, their culture, it is very good as you move forward. dance, their culture, it is very good as you move forwardlj dance, their culture, it is very good as you move forward. i guess you can tell what's going to happen
next. 0 man, here we go. laughter i think laughter ithinki laughter i think i made it through about half of that choreography. these kids are so good! i've had so much fun today getting stuck into rwandan culture. now, i'm ordering a cocktail, i'm about to kick back and enjoy a concert, rwandan style. i'm here to see one of kigali's rising music sensations. our cultural traditional
music, it's our history, it's our identity. many years ago it was getting disappeared, so i'd decided to introduce my music to the new world. such a beautiful sound. the lyrics of your music, what do they mean? what are you saying in your songs? i want everybody to know our culture, how we are doing, our history. listen to our story, where we come from, it gives the inspiration to other nations, so i wa nt to inspiration to other nations, so i want to tell the people about our country. this new generation of rwandans who have now moved on from the country's data, violent past, are shedding light and colour across the country. and while most travellers wash through kigali, it is worth setting some time aside to experience the people and their crafts in this bustling city. that's
it for this week. join us, if you can, next week when... cat is back in iceland where a new type of century for beluga whales is getting ready for its residents oh, if you insist. there you go. oh, that was a little bit! -- insist. there you go. oh, that was a little bit! —— a insist. there you go. oh, that was a little bit! -- a little insist. there you go. oh, that was a little bit! —— a little thejoin insist. there you go. oh, that was a little bit! —— a little the join out here on the road and real—time, also share your travel stories with the rest of the world. until then, from me and the rest of the team, it is goodbye.
hello there. it was a very cold start to tuesday — widespread frost up and down the country, particularly across scotland, the far north of england. now, for this morning, it's not going to be quite as cold to start. that's because we've had more of a breeze, and variable amounts of cloud too. there's still a few chilly spots across the north—east of the country, where a few clear spells linger. but further west, we'll have more of a breeze, and these weather fronts bringing thicker cloud, outbreaks of rain affecting parts of south—west england through the day, maybe western wales, along some irish sea coasts, northern ireland, and affecting western scotland at times. there could just be the odd shower, as well, running into the eastern coast of england, perhaps into north—east scotland, but most places will be dry. variable cloud, some spells of sunshine. again, another chilly day to come, maybe not quite as cold across western areas.
more cloud here, ten or 11 degrees. now, as we head to wednesday night, it says mainly dry again for much of the country. variable cloud, quite a breeze blowing, so it's not going to be quite as cold again, with lows down to 1—3 degrees. but generally, for many, fours and fives, and certainly a little bit milder than that further west, where we have the cloud and the rain. thursday, a similar picture. we'll continue with this weather front across western areas, bringing outbreaks of rain. the odd heavier burst towards the south—west, but generally light and patchy elsewhere. variable cloud, some sunny spells, and a bit more of that around on thursday. temperature—wise, again, single figures for most, but nines, maybe tens across the south. some subtle change as we head on into friday. looks like this weather front may push a little bit further northwards and eastwards across the country, so it could be a cloudier day still, with outbreaks of rain moving across northern england into parts of scotland. further south, we may see some sunshine developing, but a rush of heavier showers following on into friday afternoon and into the evening,
particularly in the south—west. temperatures coming up on the south, as well. tens and 11 degrees quite widely. still a cooler feel across the north, but even here, eight and nines. then, as we head on into the weekend, looks like this area of low pressure will skirt southern parts of the uk. the weather front may spread northwards, introducing a band of rain. and then we look to the west, this next area of low pressure, which could bring more widespread wetter and windier weather as we head through the latter part of the weekend into the start of next week. but you will notice the orange colour is really taking over, so it really will be quite mild as we end the week, although it will be turning more and more unsettled, with rain spreading to many areas. it will be quite windy as well. those temperatures reaching the low teens celsius, particularly across england and wales.
