17: Thanks and Acknowledgements

I want to thank everyone who has played a part in making Copenhagen 2021 WorldPride and EuroGames possible. We have been faced with many challenges, and the hard work and endurance of the entire team has been admirable and inspirational. As Managing Director since October 2020, many came before me and the team at event live, and they have all made an important impact at different stages of the project. A huge thanks to my predecessors, and all former staff, who all contributed immensely to the project.

Copenhagen 2021 delivered the event with 138 full-time team members, but hundreds more have contributed to the project over the years, not to forget the 1,000+ Includers that made it all happen.

Since the first board of Happy Copenhagen was appointed at the founding general meeting in May 2015, 15 volunteer board members have spent countless of volunteer hours to guide and steer the strategic decisions. Also a huge thank you for your hard work and resilience through ups and downs the last six years.

On behalf on Happy Copenhagen, a heartfelt thank you to all current and former staff, current and former board members, all Includers, contributors, partners, sponsors, and grant providers, our many advisory boards; the Human Rights Advisory Board, the EuroGames Advisory Board, the Pride Advisory Board, the Culture Advisory Board, the Youth Advisory Board, the Fluid Festival Advisory Board, the Rainbow Children Advisory Board and all our executive partners.

Copenhagen 2021 would not have been possible without you.

Benjamin Hansen,
Executive Managing Director
