This year we will meet again at the annual Education Weekend at Askov Folk School. The weekend is an oppurtunity for members to network and dive into current matters related to development work, civil society and the future.

In 2024, focus will be on the change we create together around the world and in Denmark. What foot prints do we leave in the world? What is the significance of partnerships?

The program will have four tracks which frame the conversations and reflections during the Education Weekend. You put together your own program during the weekend.
