People go to the doctor only four times a year, including in emergency situations. There is no consistency in the delivery of health care.

  • Denmark is struggling with a severe climate with optimism and love.

Have you ever heard of "Hygge? Well, it's a word that almost means intimacy. But in fact, draws a much wider range of relationships. This concept is easy to explain: it consists essentially in the creation of warmth, comfort, pleasant and relaxing atmosphere with people who love you. Such existential mood coined in particular to overcome the rigidity of climate change and a few hours of light that characterizes the country, and could plunge the people into a state of anxiety and depression. Love, forbearance, mutual help move beyond the darkness and cold of winter

  • In Denmark, people feel accountable to each other

In Denmark, there is a genuine sense of responsibility, a sense of mutual belonging, a strong bond of citizens. What does it mean? For example, thanks to these basic understanding is active participation in volunteer activities. More than 40 percent of the population voluntarily devotes many hours interactions with cultural and sports associations, non-governmental, social, or political organizations. Not surprisingly, this group of people is about 101,000 of the population of 5.5 million people.
