On October 10th in connection with Copenhagen Night of Culture, an Award Show to hand over the official Guinness World Record Certificates done on September 25th, was held on Kongens Nytorv in the centre of Copenhagen. Other than the Award show, it was also the opening/revealing of the 3D CO2 Painting. The painting is the 3D illustration of the CO2 route through Copenhagen that was done in 2009 in connection to COP15.
