Understanding the universe – and yourself


The beautiful and historical park, Søndermarken, in Copenhagen sets the scene for the ambient, experimental and thought-provoking festival of natural sciences – Bloom.

Bloom helps us understand the universe, our world and ourselves.

When the foliage has greened and the evenings brightened, Søndermarken sets the scene for the Bloom Festival in the weekend of 16-17 May 2020. Free admission for all.

What is Bloom?

At the Bloom festival, the audience is inspired by researchers, scientists and the sharpest brains, who, based on scientific research, fuel knowledge about our world, the evolution of the human body, how it changes and is healed.

Bloom aims to:

  • Increase interest in natural sciences and education and form critical and enlightened citizens with a nuanced view of the world
  • Introduce audiences to stellar scientists in a wide range of science-related disciplines
  • Get more children and young people interested in science
  • Break down narrow boundaries between professional disciplines and genres and bring people together who do not normally share thoughts and knowledge
  • Set the agenda in the dissemination of Danish science and a year-round development platform for new science dissemination


The LEO Foundation grants DKK 1,000,000 to science and nature

The LEO Foundation has recently granted DKK 1,000,000 to Bloom 2020/2021.

“We are delighted to be able to support the Bloom Festival once again and hereby strengthen the interest in science and nature – and maybe even add a spark to some of the future researchers,” says Ida Brams, Chief Grant Officer of the LEO Foundation.
