Schools to benefit from education partnership with Copenhagen 2021

17 June 2021

With just eight weeks until Copenhagen 2021 WorldPride and EuroGames, organisers have today announced a partnership with Clio to deliver new teaching material for the country’s 8.-9. classes that now make it even easier to get the important message – that everyone should have the right to be who they are – on the schedule.

“We work for a world where everyone can live and love freely and in safety”

This is the vision for Copenhagen Pride, one of two owner-organisations of Copenhagen 2021, and which works to change discriminatory legislation and create greater security for everyone in society. The organization is not against anyone or anything. they are for something: equal rights and security for all.

“With this material, we take our starting point in our movement as one of several examples of a civil rights movement. We want to inspire children and young people to take part in democracy and counteract discrimination and redress – no matter what form they face. We want to show that we can each make a difference. It is my hope that you will receive the material well and that we will see you at Pride,” said Lars Henriksen, Chair of Copenhagen Pride.

At Clio, they are incredibly happy to collaborate with Copenhagen 2021 on material that focuses on diversity, respect and inclusion in Danish primary and lower secondary schools.

“There has long been a need for educational material that focuses on both the background of the Pride movement and the struggle for inclusion and equal rights for all, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity. This is especially important because there must be something for all students to be able to reflect on, also from the general and enlightening perspective”, said Clara Mai Kunstmann, CPO at Clio.
