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 dove 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 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 understand what civic engagement and action means in 2020.
