Folkemødet: upcoming Democratic Festival on Bornholm

Published on May 31, 2022

Denmark’s Democratic Festival Folkemødet will take place on June 16-19, 2022 in Allinge, on the island of Bornholm. Together with other environmental and fisheries NGOs, FishSec will be presenting on the schooner Freia (depicted above) where participants are welcome on board to learn more about our oceans, the fish in them as well as environmental issues.

Folkemødet aims to cultivate the democratic conversation and reduce the distance between citizens and decision-makers. This year, more than 2500 events, debates, concerts, talks and political events are on offer. All events are free and within walking distance of each other. The preliminary programme (in Danish) for events on board Freia can be found here. For all Folkemødet events, please search in the full official programme.
