Chapter 9 of Let's Know More About That Country - Denmark, the Happiest Country in the World

Host: Hiraizumi International Exchange Association

2011.09.25 (Sun)

岩手県国際交流協会 後援 

This is a message from the hometown of Hans Christian Andersen, on how to become a country that is easy to live in.

Denmark was once a cold and poor country. However, after the war, Denmark accomplished a system reform as the social welfare state, and now Denmark has become no.1 in world in the "National Welfare Ranking".
So what is the best way to live a happy life? What does Denmark have that Japan doesn't?
Using Andersen's fairy tales such as 'the Ugly Duckling', 'the Emperor's New Clothes' and 'the Little Mermaid' as a hint we will look at freedom, responsibility, politics, education, welfare, poverty and more.
We hope that you can join us.
