I Newsletter of EU-Russia Civil Society Forum er der en kort rapport fra Anna Sevortians besøg i København i december.

A Big Danish Voyage of Anna Sevortian

AS i kbhUpon invitation of the Baltic Sea NGO Network Denmark, Anna Sevortian, Executive Director of the EU-Russia Civil Society Forum, paid a visit to Copenhagen on 1-3 December 2014. Anna came to talk on the situation in the Russian NGO sector and promote the work of the Forum. She gave a lecture at the University of Copenhagen as well as attended meetings at the Copenhagen City Hall and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark.

Special attention was paid to cooperation opportunities between the EU-Russia Civil Society Forum and Danish NGOs, in particular the
Danish Helsinki Committee for Human Rights, which applied for a Forum membership.

'This time in Copenhagen was important for building a "bridge" to Scandinavia,' says Anna Sevortian. 'EU-Russia Civil Society Forum today has only few links to the Northern European states, and for some time it was our wish to closer cooperate with this region, so the Danish colleagues' initiative was very timely. It was encouraging to learn about re-socialisation programmes for the underpriviledged and migrants run by Kofoeds School in Copenhagen, to know about the work on minority issues in Denmark. I hope this wealth of experience will soon be presented within the Forum.'

The Danish Baltic Sea NGO Network brings together around 40 organisations. These NGOs are engaged in the development of the Baltic Sea states in the field of human rights, civil society, social issues, culture, and environment. Visit the official website of the Network to learn more.
