Meet the world is a subject about climate, culture and politics.
Here, we examine the small and large worlds around us. We look at agriculture, asylum, nationalism, nature and social organization and we go on lots of trips and visits.
We are going to a conventional pig barn and meet a local farmer. We will visit hand-operated micro-farms and young people who have moved to the countryside and are organizing collectively.
At the deportation camp, Kærshovedgård, we meet rejected asylum seekers. In other words, we seek out the locals and those with delusions of grandeur, those who struggle and organize, those who challenge the conventional answers, and those who don't just talk about change but already live it out.
When we are not on tour, we tackle global issues at home from the classroom. It can be about climate, migration, gender and power or deep dives into specific topics elsewhere.
You can count on an excursion approximately every two weeks and a three-day mini-study tour.
Topics and themes:
Racism/rights of indigenous peoples,
Extractivism and post-colonialism
The asylum system in Denmark
Collective organization and alternative lifestyles
Small local communities and rural life
I have a bachelor's degree in anthropology, but above all I have learned something about the world over many years in a self-sufficient collective in the countryside.
When I was in college myself, we built a whole house from the ground up on my line, although most of us barely knew which end of the hammer to hit with when we started. It was an absolutely crazy experience to go out and do things that neither of us thought we could figure out.
I have previously taught horticulture, music and self-sufficiency at the high schools in Brenderup, Gram and Nordfyn, worked with Latin American rebel movements and played in disco-pop and punk bands.
In addition, I like cycling, cross-country and nice jogging clothes.
