Historically, the folk high school movement has contributed to civic changes and the development of the Danish society. Popular engagement and commitment are crucial for our ability to solve the climate crisis. Sustainability should not solely be a key issue for politicians, NGO’s and activists. Only if everyone is involved, can we reach the best solutions and find the energy to carry them out in real life.
Folk high schools can become a strong, relevant and solution-oriented partner in the societal transition to sustainability. With this project, The Association of Folk High Schools in Denmark aims to contribute to the popular and civic foundation of a transition to sustainability. Using continual documentation and media campaigns, both nationally and globally, the project will create a communication platform for the folk high school students' ideas, hopes and dreams of a greener and more sustainable world.
