Friday 16 September 2022, the Danish training ship ‘DANMARK’ will arrive in New York City as a part of Denmark’s celebration of the UN Climate Week 2022.

The ship, hosted by the South Street Seaport Museum, will dock at the city’s historic Seaport, New York’s original commercial hub located along the East River with views over the Brooklyn Bridge.

New York, NY – Starting Sunday 18 September and the following week, the ship will set the stage for events, including open ships, where visitors and New Yorkers can board ‘DANMARK’, see the full-rigged ship up close and talk to the 80 young cadets, who are currently training at the ship and have been sailing it across the Atlantic.

The Climate Week NYC 2022 voyage is part of Denmark’s journey towards sustainability. The intention is to use the climate-friendly training ship as a platform to inspire and invite dialogue on the issues of innovative and sustainable solutions that can support countries around the world in offering their citizens a better and greener quality of life.

“It is a great pleasure to bring ‘DANMARK’ to New York for the UN Climate Week. The Training Ship has strong historic ties to the US and New York in particular, and today Denmark and New York are united in their quest for greener solutions For us in VisitDenmark, this is an opportunity to create a unique platform, to invite dialogue and to tell inspiring stories from Denmark,” says CEO in VisitDenmark, Jan Olsen.

“New York is a global city. For hundreds of years, it has connected to the rest of the world via the sea,” says Capt. Jonathan Boulware, President and CEO of the South Street Seaport Museum. “We are so pleased to host the sailing ship ‘DANMARK’, which is a reinvigoration of these connections, and not for the first time. ‘DANMARK’ has been at South Street many times before! Concurrent with the UN General Assembly, ‘DANMARK’s” visit, and the ship’s educational mission is a perfect fit for the Museum and the Seaport.”

“This partnership with the South Street Seaport Museum to welcome the training ship ‘DANMARK’ marks an exciting milestone for the Seaport,” says Saul Scherl, President of New York for The Howard Hughes Corporation. “The return of ships like these to Pier 17 is part of our ongoing commitment to educating visitors about the importance of maritime activity for waterfront communities across the world, including New York City.”
