The partnership between the city of Copenhagen and the Human Library Organization will continue in 2016. This will enable us to bring the Human Library to even more educational institutions, where the concept and methodology has proven very effective in the past eighteen months.

“We are delighted at this opportunity to further strenghten our presence in schools and to make our contribution to build tolerance and prevent discrimination”, says Ronni Abergel of the HLO.

In 2015 a record 22 events were held in the greater Copenhagen area.
