From Esbjerg to Dehli + India Forever Young
Before the pandemic closed the doors to the world, Danish Cultural Institute in India was able to greet Esbjerg Youth Symphony Orchestra in New Delhi. Here the young musicians learned about the history of India and the Indian food culture. They collaborated with local musicians, among those were the Neemrana Music Foundation, the Mela Music Academy in Bangalore, and The Parikrama School. The young people shared their views on the future and on the climate crisis with each other.
Later in the year Dansk Cultural Institute in India together with the Golden Days Festival in Denmark arranged an online event for students from the Lotus Valley International School of Noida and Gladsaxe Gymnasium in Copenhagen. The students shared the experiences on COVID-19, the challenges of online education, and how is it to be young in the year 2020.
