Who are Danes Worldwide?

Globus af verdenen, danes worldwide

Danes Worldwide’s staff members work diligently to make it easier to be a “global Dane” living and working outside Denmark for any length of time. We make it easier for you to get settled in the new country – and harder to forget where you came from. We do this in three ways:

  • Online Danish Courses – we help children maintain the Danish language and the memory of Denmark’s culture through online language instruction and through our annual Summer School.
  • Advisory service – we provide advice about settling abroad and returning to Denmark
  • Network – we introduce Danes abroad to each other

In addition, we act as the voice of Danes living abroad – before they leave, while they are away, and when they return – by advocating for their interests in such matters as dual citizenship, family reunification, and the right to vote in parliamentary elections in Denmark.

As we have been doing all this since 1919, our experience looking after Danes abroad is extensive. Danes Worldwide is a membership organization not receiving any kind of public funds or other support. It represents more than 250,000 expat Danes all over the world.

We offer personal memberships, youth memberships, passive memberships and corporate memberships.
