Panel Discussion on the Future of the Unity of the Realm
Humanity in Action Denmark had the honor of inviting Aki-Matilda Høegh-Dam (member of Danish Parliament for the Greenlandic party Siumut), Sjúrður Skaale (member of Danish Parliament for the Faroese party Javnaðarflokkurin) and Martin Lidegaard (former Minister for Foreign Affairs and member of Danish Parliament for Radikale Venstre) to a panel debate on the future of the Unity of the Realm.
The debate addressed questions such as: What does the future of the Realm look like? Does the Realm even have a future, or is secession and sovereignty the natural culmination of a long historical development? Should we rather work towards redefining and strengthening the unity, a Unity of the Realm 2.0?
A Conversation with Former Chief Rabbi Bent Melchior on Civic Engagement
Humanity in Action Denmark had the pleasure of welcoming former Chief Rabbi Bent Melchior to a conversation on his lifelong civil engagement and what inspired him to fight for refugees and vulnerable groups in our society: namely his own flight from Nazism in October 1943.
Bent Melchior has most recently published a book with Özlem Cecik, written by Anders Jerichow, about their newly established union, Forening Brobyggerne, which holds Bent Melchior as the Chairman of the Board.
With his lifelong civil engagement, presence, and delight for telling, it is always an pleasure to hear Bent speak about his life.
