Danish Parliament to host Human Library
The Human Library Organization has accepted an invitation to publish our books at the Danish Parliament as part of Constitution Day celebrations. Members of parliament, staff and all citizens are encouraged to drop by and unjudge someone.
MPs to feature on bookshelf
As part of the event on June 5th we have invited two members of the Parliament to be trained as open books. In doing so, they will help us challenge prejudice about elected officials and be on loan to readers, along with topics such as refugee, bipolar, transgender, Jew, homeless, unemployed, HIV + and many more.
Conversations about our diversity
The purpose of the event is to create a safe space for a democratic dialogue about our diversity. Where we can have conversations that help us challenge what we think we know about each other. It is a cornerstone value of our democracy that we have respect for the right to be different and the right to have different views. But it is increasingly important that we remind each other of the value in that recognition.
Free to our readers
We expect to publish more than 25 different titles on Constitution Day. It’s free for everyone to join, and loans can have a duration of up to 30 minutes. Readers under the age of 15 need to accompanied by an adult.
