Explore the 2020 Copenhagen Fellowship's Open Events



This year the Copenhagen Fellowship 2020 focused on Denmark’s relation to Greenland and the Faeroe Islands. Using a Human Rights lens we dived deep into the pressing realities of this often overlooked region and Denmark’s role in shaping it. During the Fellowship we hosted four Open Events where the Copenhagen public was invited inside to discuss related topics with our Fellows.

All events tried to untangle the complex issues related to the Unity of the Realm as well as understanding what civic engagement and Action means in 2020.

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.
