Keep doing this awesome job. I cannot thank you enough for this! I guess it would be useful to have it twice a year, but maybe that’s being too ambitious?
I have been in Denmark for a number of years and attended International Citizen Days every year because there is so much information. There is always something new and interesting here.
I think there were some very different things on the two days. I learned something on both days. Friday for me was about job and career. Saturday was about community resources and how we can connect with clubs and who can help us with what in Denmark.
