More than 350 people from CBS tied up their laces and set off running or walking on Friday 30 August as they took part in the world’s largest running event, with 120,000 participants in Fælledparken, Copenhagen.
CBS entered 69 teams – 46 teams running and 23 teams walking.
The event has a 39-year track record and keeps inspiring new goals, experiences and changes.
The DHL relay is all about teamwork. Each participant runs 5 km carrying a baton that is passed from hand to hand until the last team member crosses the finish line. At a more relaxed tempo, the five members comprising the teams of walkers complete their 5-km route together.
From amateurs to experienced runners: participants have different starting points. Others prefer encouraging their team on from the sidelines.
Some of CBS’s teams, such as TEAM FI – Fast, CBS ECON Team A or Strategy and Innovation 1, were happy to hear they had won places in the top 100 when the final classification results were announced.
Every year, more than 120,000 Danes gather to run or walk during the five days of races.
After the event, the participants received meal boxes from various sponsors.
CBS entered a multitude of teams in the competition; all completed the race last Friday.
Sparta Athletics and Running has organized the event since 1981.
More students and employees at CBS should make an effort to help the green agenda, but not necessarily everyone at our university has to join in, according to Hanne Harmsen, CBS’ Vice Dean of Green Transition. “I don’t believe in universities with a single agenda,” she says, adding that we also need our politicians to acknowledge the importance of social sciences when solving our climate crisis.
About half of all students in Denmark have used at least one illegally shared textbook while studying. The majority are obtained from friends or study groups, and many students find this practice acceptable. But when books are illegally shared, writers are not paid, which over the years will mean that fewer textbooks will be written in Danish and about Danish subjects.
Humour is essential everywhere – in all walks of life. But how does humour work? And is it always helpful? Humour researcher and professor emeritus at CBS Lita Lundquist and British-born, Danish-based Helen Dyrbye, translator and principal author of The Xenophobe’s Guide to the Danes, have co-authored a new book called Danish Humour – Sink or Swim and have some advice on how humour can backfire across cultures.
How do we prevent researchers and small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) from overlooking each other when hoping to collaborate? Start by accepting different work paces and respecting each other’s differences, advises CBS Professor Luigi Butera. “It’s kind of like dating,” he said at a recent workshop designed to bring SMEs and CBS researchers closer together.
