Amazing speeches everyday. Done in a very professional, TV-like manner. The host was supergood at asking questions and following up on them, and all questions were incredibly relevant. The people brought were very knowledgeable, and overall the experience was great! I genuinely wish next year would be same format, it worked so so well.
It was a great experience for me. As a new in Denmark I felt welcome. During those days, I received knowledge, consulting and I socialised with amazing people from other countries. I love the idea and form of International Citizen Day! I'm looking forward to join in next year. Well done!
