Climate change is global and Denmark is a country surrounded by water. Two facts that the people who live at the coasts of Denmark feel everyday. Last week, Studenterhus Aarhus organised a study trip to the West coast of Jutland where students learned about the climate challenges this region is facing. But also about the job opportunities that come along for young people, for example the EU-funded Coast to Coast Climate Challenge project and the “Climatorium”.

Terrorized at home: The Rohingya Crisis

Since August 25th, over 600,000 Rohingyas have fled Myanmar. This Muslim minority has been terrorized by its own government and military for over five decades. Despite the fact that Bangladesh has done an enormous job by receiving and supporting thousands of refugees, many of them are also being trafficked and enslaved.

Christmas in Denmark

Christmas is officially here and this week we explore Danish life by looking at how the Danes wait for Christmas. We talk about advent calendars, Christmas candles, and of course, aebleskivers, glögg, and other quintessential Christmas food. Experience Christmas from the eyes of someone who has never celebrated Christmas before!
